Cranky Yellow is excited to host the Saint Louis Premiere of Skin Trade: What’s your skin worth! Sit down and enjoy an eye-opening shock-o-rama of how the Fur industry actually operates. The movie features interviews and first hand accounts into the cruelty of wearing fur for fashion.
YAY for Film nights @ Cranky Yellow! August 5th from 8pm till 10pm.
Join us for the Screening of this award-winning* documentary Shannon Keith:
“What would you do if you found out the “faux” fur trim on your neck was really made of dog fur? How far will the fur industry go to get you to buy real fur? Skin Trade takes you on a journey from the birth of the fur industry as fashion through the current trends, misconceptions, and lies perpetrated upon unknowing consumers. Voices from the underground, celebrities, historians, native americans, activists, designers, fashion icons and experts weigh in on the current use of of fur as fashion, which inevitably begs the question, “Why are animals still being killed for fashion?”
Stay after the film for a discussion and to brainstorm ways to be active for animals.
The film is free, but donations are welcome. We’ll be donating to ARME (Animal Rescue, Media and Education).
Started by animal rights attorney, Shannon Keith, in 2004, ARME works in conjunction with Uncaged Films to make documentary films that educate the public about animal abuse.
