We hosted Fairfield filmmaker Brean Cunningham this week for a screening of his documentary, Dogs on the Inside. From the film’s website,
Dogs on the Inside follows the relationships between abused stray dogs and prison inmates working towards a second chance at a better life. In an attempt to re-build their confidence and prepare for a new life outside, these prisoners must first learn to handle and care for a group of neglected strays. This heart-warming story reconfirms the timeless connection between man and dog, showing the resiliency of a dogs’ trust and the generosity of the human spirit in the unlikeliest of places.

Overlooked by the Academy for a Best Documentary Feature nomination, Blackfish is a must-see for animal lovers and people against cruelty of any kind. Blackfish follows the plight and abuse of killer whales at institutions like Sea World in Orlando, FL. You’ll never look at a zoo or aquarium in the same way after viewing this essential documentary.
