The Portland EcoFilm Festival presents
CALLED TO RESCUE: Redefining Our Barnyard Story
Sunday, Oct. 1 | 6:30 pm
Filmmaker Naomi Call in attendance for post-film discussion!
A joyful, non-graphic view into the lives of rescued animals and the unbridled compassion of the people who create farm animal sanctuaries. The rescued farm animals, simply by being who they are, are changing lives, lifestyles, and beliefs on both sides of the fence. The humans, many of whom dramatically altered the course of their lives because of a connection with a farm animal, are dedicated beyond words.
Directed by Naomi Sophia Call and Loghan Call | 2017 | US | 1 HR. 5 MINS.
