Animals and birds all have the same right to live just like we humans do. We all share the planet, and it is for every living thing not only humans. These vegan movies and vegan documentaries strive to bring a realization. We are more powerful and operate with higher intelligence, but that is not an excuse to exploit other living things for food, fashion, beauty and entertainment. Lastly, we all have a choice - the choice to make a conscious effort to move towards cruelty-free practices and living. Hopefully, more vegan movies and vegan documentaries featuring wholesome plant-based foods and cruelty-free living are produced to increase awareness.
