Ethical concerns (animals)

Films about which I am concerned about possible abuse of animals (mistreatment, on- or off-screen killings, etc.) Far too many fall into this category, and it's a sad indictment that it is so difficult to even get solid information in most cases, let alone widespread condemnation. For this list, my concern is usually based on something reasonably concrete, although I'm often far from certain about what (if anything) happened. See also my ETHICAL FEARS (ANIMALS) list.

“ I received a message from Daniel Carbone, the writer-director of the film, when he saw its appearance on this list. He says that he shares my concern about how animals are used in film & TV productions and wanted to let me know about the animal use in his film: a few shots of real dead animals sourced from medical suppliers, the sort who supply animal bodies to medical schools etc.

Whether people consider that a problem or not obviously depends on individuals' own ethics, but it's fantastic to get some proper information and to know that there are people in the film world who take the issue seriously. Many thanks Dan, your message was greatly appreciated. ” - Chris Gomez
