DCTV and Filmwax Radio will present a special live podcast event with Filmwax host Adam Schartoff for a conversation with filmmakers D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus about their longstanding careers and new documentary feature, online Unlocking the Cage on May 20. 2016.
Unlocking the Cage follows animal rights lawyer Steven Wise in his unprecedented challenge to break down the legal wall that separates animals from humans, by filing the first lawsuits that seek to transform a chimpanzee from a “thing” with no rights to a “person” with legal protections.
Unlocking the Cage online opens May 25th at New York’s Film Forum, and nationally in June.
