"Unlocking The Cage" Documentary Screening
Noreen Coyne and Cynthia Xerogianes in partnership with the Non Human Rights Project are proud to announce a public screening of the highly-acclaimed documentary, Unlocking the Cage, directed by Academy Award nominated directors Chris Hegedus and D. A. Pennebaker, best known for their films Dont Look Back and The War Room.

Unlocking the Cage follows animal rights lawyer Steven Wise and The Nonhuman Rights Project legal team in their unprecedented court challenge to break down the legal wall that separates animals from humans. From roadside zoos to courtroom battles, it is an intimate look at a lawsuit that could forever transform our legal system, and one mans lifelong quest to protect nonhuman animals.

Unlocking the Cage first premiered in 2016 at the Sundance Film Festival and has been shown at dozens of film festivals across the globe.

Please join us at Uncommon Ground Edgewater from 5:30-7:30 for pre-show dinner and drinks! The film will begin at 7:30, directly followed by a panel discussion.
