THE ANIMAL PEOPLE, from Academy Award-winning Executive Producer Joaquin Phoenix, follows the journey of six young activists who find themselves indicted as terrorists by the United States government. The reason: the activists' leadership of a controversial protest campaign aiming to close down the largest animal testing laboratory in the world. Featuring expansive interviews with the six activists spanning more than a decade, rare archival footage – including never-before-seen surveillance footage, wiretaps, and government documents, The Animal People is a chilling portrait of what happens when activism rattles the institutions of power.
