Rescuing Big Cats from Bolivian Circuses

Rescuing Big Cats from Bolivian Circuses: LION ARK opens Nov. 15, 2013

Lion Ark

Laemmle Theatres and ADI Films are pleased to present LION ARK. More action adventure than traditional documentary, LION ARK follows the world’s most ambitious and daring animal rescue operation, with a narrative meticulously compiled from film, interviews, conversations and the reactions of participants as events actually unfold.

 The exclusive Los Angeles engagement begins Friday, November 15th at the Music Hall. Press screeners are available for review.

After an undercover investigation into animal cruelty led to a ban on traveling animal circuses in Bolivia, circus owners continued to defy the law. LION ARK documents the harrowing subsequent animal rescues as they unfolded. The team behind the investigation tracked down the illegal circuses and saved every animal, airlifting 25 lions to sanctuary in Colorado. This uplifting story of bravery, compassion, camaraderie and determination proves how a poor but proud country can say “no” to animal cruelty and how attitudes toward animals can be changed across an entire continent.
