Storyline

How did a controversial, ultra-radical organization become the largest animal rights group in the world? For the past 25 years, Ingrid Newkirk and People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) have tirelessly attacked one of the pillars of civilization: mankind's use of animals. Ingrid and her supporters are driven by the single-minded conviction that humans must not use animals for any reason - not for food, clothing, medical experimentation, or even for entertainment.

Quotes

Employee: You know that cliché "A picture is worth a thousand words?" A video of what happens to animals is worth a library of words. You could have a library of books about how horrible it is for animals in slaughterhouses, in laboratories, but nobody is going to read those books.

A candid and introspective look at the extreme beliefs and motives of Ingrid Newkirk, the British-born co-founder and driving force behind People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), the world's largest animal-rights organization. I Am an Animal: The Story of Ingrid Newkirk and PETA is a forgettable and highly disappointing documentary to say the least and the only thing that it will do by the end its to bore you to death plus there isn't that much of a good amount of messages to be told either since they come wrong out.
