How art can be used as a tool for social awakening? Artistic activism is a way of thinking that generates actions which go beyond what is conventional to human society. It has played a major role in combating slavery, challenging polemic social tactics and politics, protecting human and non-human beings from exploitation, defending the environment, promoting gender equality, opposing speciesism, racism, sexism and so many other significant issues.
The documentary explores the ethics and validity of our sovereignty over the planet. Activists with drones, hidden and handheld cameras have managed to unravel the barbarity of the animal exploitation industries.
