Dear Tilly

Dear Tilly

00:23:33

"Dear Tilly" is a short documentary framed as a letter to Carrie and Ron Shogan's adopted daugher, a pig named Tilly. Despite living a tragically short life, Matilda inspired the two to open a sanctuary where 70+ animals now reside and thrive. While Tilly may not be here to witness the lives saved by her legacy, others can. In an effort to create closure and inspire empathy, "Dear Tilly" blurs the lines between human and animal in a time where our definition of family needs to stretch far beyond our own reflection.

“This is my world. Join me as I climb transport trucks, and stay quietly and diligently with animals as they go to slaughter. Join me in the dusty roads and at my little hotel room editing desk, as Miguel and I discuss animals, animal photojournalism and, ultimately, kindness.” Moving Animals is a powerful short film about Jo-Anne McArthur’s documentation of the long-distance transport of animals, shot and produced by filmmaker Miguel Endara. Jo-Anne also talks about solutions and how being vegan led to her feeling happy: intellectually, psychologically and emotionally aligned in her place in the world.

Freedom Farm Sanctuary/Documentary Series by Taliya Finkel for Kan Digital 6 Chapters. 8-10 minutes each At the Freedom Farm Sanctuary in Israel, ‘imperfect’ farm animals rejected from the food industry find a forever home. This optimistic, sweet, and profoundly moving documentary series follows the journey of the unique relationships formed between these adorable animals and those sanctuary volunteers (often with their own ‘imperfections’) who go above and beyond to care for them. With sensitivity, humor and love, these stories remind us of the universal oneness between humans and animals, and invite us to view the animals through the lens of individuals in society who have also been ‘othered’ in a variety of ways, and who have much to share about the real meaning of compassion and respect, and the path to healing ourselves and the world: Billy: a disabled IDF war veteran with a prosthetic leg who identifies with the disabled animals on the farm. Yanna: (a Russian immigrant who) struggles with body image issues and finds unexpected comfort with chickens from the meat industry because like them, she feels trapped in her own body. Mantegvosh (an Ethiopian immigrant who)dedicates herself to caring for a blind goat as she frets about her own hereditary vision problems. Orna was the first female bus driver in Israel, and recovered from cancer, but suffers from insomnia and finds peace working night shifts as farm security. Orly is flooded by painful childhood memories as she cares for a baby goat rescued just moments before he was slaughtered as a Passover sacrifice. Ilana helps farm volunteers with mental impairments overcome fear and befriend two pigs who struggle with severe pain due to genetic modification.
