On TV: HUNTWATCH

huntwatchComing to Discovery Impact tomorrow, Thursday, September 22: HUNTWATCH

Brant Backlund’s look at a crusade against seal hunting debuted at DOC NYC last year. Other screenings have included Santa Barbara, Sedona, Boulder, and Newport Beach.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
In Canada, seal hunting was historically considered to be a respectable job until people witnessed the graphic images of the practice for themselves on television. Angry and committed to save the seals, Brian Davies, a charismatic young activist, sets out on a crusade that becomes his life’s mission. Using the power of cinematography, celebrity, and science, Davies exposes the cruelty of the hunt while making audiences fall in love with these graceful, vulnerable creatures, as explored in Brant Backlund’s rousing film.
