“Fowl Play” NYC Film Screening

Jan 1

Flow Play, Adam Durand, 2009, USA; 50 minutes

Screening Thursday, May 13th, at 6:30pm

Most Americans are opposed to the inhumane treatment of animals—which is why the egg industry is so secretive about the operations that yield food for our breakfast tables. Fowl Play investigates hen abuse in the industry, drawing on the dedicated documentation of activists. Interviews with rescuers, veterinarians, and animal behaviorists challenge us to consider the politics of ethical eating.

Following the screening there will be a Q&A with Matt Rice, Mercy for Animals; Jenny Brown, Founder, Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary; Martha Lazar, chicken keeper and blogger (  and Elizabeth Ayer, BK Farmyard’s farmer /consultant, Farm Director and Caretaker at Wyckoff Community Garden and Farmers Market.  Followed by a reception in the Furman Gallery.

Walter Reade Theater, 165 W 65th Street, upper level
