Beyond the Myth Film Las Cruces New Mexico
Beyond the Myth: A Film About Breed Discrimination will be hosted by ACTion Programs for Animals (which is a 501(c)3 nonprofit charity) in Las Cruces, NM. They are the only animal-welfare charity in Las Cruces which advocates for the fair and equal treatment of pit bull-type dogs in their community, and hope this film will help open the eyes of those in rescue work here and the general public about how breed discrimination hurts families and dogs.
Beyond the Myth Synopsis
Viewers are taken on a journey to four
U.S. cities where Breed Specific Legislation focusing on "pit bulls" has profoundly impacted people and animals: Denver, Miami, Cincinnati, and San Francisco.
The documentary intelligently explores the contributing factors behind the public's generalized fear of "pit bulls", and examines the conflict existing between advocates and opponents of breed discriminatory laws, commonly referred to as breed bans. It investigates the myths associated with these breeds, challenges the idea that they are inherently vicious, presents eye-opening research regarding the media's role in influencing people's opinion on dog attacks.
