The Emotional World of Farm Animals is a wonderful documentary produced by Animal Place and led by best-selling author Jeffrey Masson. This delightful film – for viewers of all ages – is all about the thinking and feeling side of farmed animals. At United Poultry Concerns, for example, founder Karen Davis describes chickens’ zest for life, their extensive communication systems, and their extended family life.
Jeffrey Masson, author of The Pig Who Sang to the Moon, leads viewers through his personal journey, while writing his beautiful book, into the sentient, emotional lives of farmed animals at sanctuaries around the country, including United Poultry Concerns, Animal Place, Farm Sanctuary, and Colorado’s Wilderness Ranch. You meet the animals along with teenagers who had a change of heart, and experts in animal behavior who share their perspectives on these amazing creatures.
