Beyond the Myth: A Story of Breed Discrimination in America
Saturday August 18th
Hosted by One Tail At A Time Rescue from 6-9pm at Instituto Cervantes
31 W. Ohio st. Chicago, IL
Doors open at 6pm, with merchandise and mingling in the lobby until 6:45pm, then a word from special guest Kelly Michaels and her two legged pitbull, Bionic Fifty. Film to start promptly at 7:10pm.
Beyond the Myth is about dog breeds commonly referred to as"pit bulls" and those who love these breeds. 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.
