“Beyond Closed Doors”- New documentary released which takes a comprehensive look at agricultural practices around the world.
Unlike many documentaries on animal treatment, “Beyond Closed Doors” (BCD) is not horrifying to watch. Instead, Sandgrain Films has taken a comprehensive look at the correlation between science, ethics, and the politics of farm animal treatment. Two years in the making, BCD is a powerful, informative, and thought-provoking film that relies on contrast and comparison of agricultural practices around the world, to make a case for the ethical and humane treatment of farm animals.
