The National Museum of Animals is hosting the Los Angeles Premiere of “Turlock”, a documentary about the largest rescue of farm animals in California history. The screening is part of the museum’s mission to explore the human-animal bond. The screening will be held Saturday, February 15th at 7pm.

The museum’s current exhibit, Uncooped explores the common perceptions of chickens and contrasts these stereotypes to studies on chicken behavior, cognition and emotions. In addition, the exhibit reveals how farmed raised chickens are cared for.

The movie, Turlock further explores the human-animal bond by documenting the release of 4,460 abandoned hens from a battery cage egg farm by Animal Place rescuers. By following the rescue of the hens the film exposes the reality of animal farming today and raises questions about how we view non-human animals in our society. The film was produced by Keegan Kuhn one of the animal rescuers at the battery cage egg farm and a filmmaker by trade.

The National Museum of Animals is located at 4302 Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, CA 90029. The cost is $15 for members and $20 for nonmembers before February 15th and increases to $20 for members and $25 for nonmembers on February 15th. Dinner will be served with the movie by Southern Fried Vegan BBQ. For more information about Turlock, NMAS and upcoming exhibitions visit http://www.museumofanimals.org/#
