Martin’s Act at 200 Audio Documentary Complete

CAF’s six-part audio documentary on the enactment and legacy of the Cruel Treatment of Cattle Act, sponsored by Richard “Humanity Dick” Martin, and passed into law two hundred years ago, is now complete, and available on seven platforms.

The audio documentary, which was written and directed by Alex Lockwood, is accompanied by twenty original interviews, archival recordings, and re-enactments. It asks key questions: Did the commitment to animal welfare sideline or enable the argument for animal rights? How much has the animal movement actually achieved for animals? Does legislation drive change or react to it? And what lessons can be learned for the animal movement going forward? The audio documentary is a component of chart2050, an effort to engage communities in thinking about what they would like to see accomplished for animals by the year 2050.
