MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR

I express my deep gratitude to all who have contributed and shared this film campaign.  Whether the funding goal was reached does not affect my commitment to this important film.  Every contribution counts and is needed to keep production efforts going. This critical film is an investment in humanity and the lives of countless animals around the globe who die in silence every day. 

50 MILLION+ fur-bearing animals, including man’s best friend and feline companion, are brutally murdered without mercy for the fur trade every year.  Violence toward animals is a mental and spiritual aberration of social justice and violation of animal rights at its core.  An egocentric and disconnected society is perpetuating the holocaust of animals with no moral conscience or ethical boundaries.  We can either bemoan their fate or we can choose to confront the dark forces of insatiable ego with spiritual awakening.  Which choice will you make?  It is time for the soul of humanity to awaken. If not now, when? The time is NOW.

Kathleen Lowson, Director CRY OF THE INNOCENT: The Voices That Can't Speak http://www.cryoftheinnocent.com/

"Choose if you would take your place among the saviors of the world, or would remain in hell, and hold your brothers there.” - A Course in Miracles

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

This film speaks the voice of truth for those who cannot speak for themselves.  It does not rely on gruesome images as a means to convey the message, but it does reveal the reality.  This precedent-setting film will reveal the spiritual truth behind the veil of a culture that perpetuates the holocaust of animals, with its center on the fur trade.  Its pure intent is to probe into the deeper level of the psyche, so that the nemesis can be healed.  

If we cannot witness inhumanity, we cannot empower humanity, and we fail as a “human” species.  If we are not willing to hear their cries or experience their terror, then we are not willing to bear witness to the truth, which is the only path to redemption and transformation. 

This film is one that needs to be made, for it would be a tragedy of epic proportions to passively consent to the silence of mass murder for profit, vanity and ignorance.

I have asked myself the question: If not me, then who?  Someone needs to make this film, to beckon the soul of humanity to awaken.  That’s us, you and me.  If not us, then who?  If not now, when?

Animal rights is the greatest social justice issue of our time

Every year, more than 50 MILLION fur-bearing animals, including man’s best friend and feline companion, are brutally murdered without mercy in the name of greed, vanity and ignorance.  The fur trade is criminal and an atrocity at the lowest level of inhumanity.  To address the issue of animal cruelty in our society is to address the complexity of the human condition and our collective consciousness, which perceives animals as commodities, rather than loving, sentient beings.  

The animals, the earth, the human species are one inseparable soul energy.  When every animal can speak their voice in their own language and be heard by a humane and empathetic society, they will be set free and we will set ourselves free.  Their unconditional love is the cure to the spiritual crisis of our planet.  

ABOUT THE MOVIE:  This compelling film reflects the need of a changing society and its revolution for evolution – not a battle with armor but a quest for spiritual epiphany and the redemption of our planet.

CRY OF THE INNOCENT: The Voices That Can’t Speak is an impassioned call for a paradigm shift in consciousness and transformational social evolution.  Interpreted from the soul perspective, the film will bridge the link with a spiritual point of view to help heal the "condition of disconnect" in our society.

This feature-length documentary will include interviews with spiritual leaders, visionaries, humanitarians, environmentalists, animal welfare leaders, celebrities, luminaries, social consciousness movers, evolution biologists and others.  Discussion will also include the political representation of animals in our society, including animal welfare as a constitutional principle.

Did you know?  The majority of fur-trimmed items (even trinkets) labeled as “faux fur” or “synthetic” is real fur, mostly from domestic cats and dogs. The dog and cat fur trade, a largely unknown animal protection issue, will be exposed in the film and brought into the international spotlight.

We cannot hope to make a difference through apathy Closing our eyes will only serve to perpetuate the destruction caused by an egocentric and disconnected society.

"The perpetrators and the people who support such atrocity disconnect from its cruelty and perpetuate the condition.  Unless we heal the source of inhumanity, the disease will prevail – any lesser remedy will be akin to applying a bandage to a severed limb.”   - Kathleen Lowson, Director, CRY OF THE INNOCENT: The Voices That Can’t Speak

We can choose to turn a blind eye and remain prisoners in chains. Or we can choose to confront the dark forces and foster the energy of love on our planet.  Which choice will you make?

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC NEWS WATCH REVIEW http://newswatch.nationalgeographic.com/2012/06/18/cry-of-the-innocent/

"A revealing new film explores the psychological and spiritual factors that contribute to animal cruelty in the fur industry. Rather than merely covering tales of brutality, Cry of the Innocent: The Voices that Can't Speak interprets from the "soul perspective" in an attempt to explore the underlying source of animal abuse and the subsequent disconnection in society.  As Lowson has stated: "The power of respect will change our world" - respect for ourselves and respect for life." - National Geographic News Watch

CHICAGO EXAMINER http://www.examiner.com/article/who-are-you-wearing-chicago

"The innocent in the title of Lowson's movie are the estimated 50 million animals that are slaughtered annually for their fur for the sake of fashion... Lowson doesn't follow the temptation to communicate her message with stark visuals.  Instead, she takes the more sensitive road. Lowson has recently released her film trailer in an effort to bring attention to what she believes are the deeper implications of the killing of animals for fur, and to raise funding for the completion of her film." - Chicago Examiner

"Extraordinary…a brave and vitally important piece of work." - A.M.

"Very tastefully done...gets the point across without turning anyone away." - T.W.

"Riveting!!" - D.T.

"Wow, powerful and gripping!" - J.S.

"I hope God counted my tears. This is an excellent video to Truth." - D.C.

"Really powerful! Very well done! - J.W.

"Wow!!! This is amazing! Really, really good." - T.H.

"Very deeply affecting... and will succeed in raising consciousness. This film is going to be big.” - D.D.

Challenges and Risks The biggest challenges are to raise enough funds to complete the film, stay on schedule, and achieve the goal of global distribution.  That being said, the greatest risk is not taking one.  My unstoppable dedication to this film and personal investment reflects my commitment to persevere until the goal is met.  I was born to do this film and will not cease in my efforts until the film is completed and released.
