Organize a Lion Ark screening in your community!

Great news! The award winning film Lion Ark, charting the Animal Defenders International rescue operation to enforce legislation banning animal circuses in Bolivia, has now partnered up with Tugg. Tugg is an online platform that allows individuals to host screenings in their home town.

You choose the date and venue from participating theaters and then tell everyone you know to get enough RSVPs to confirm your event. Tugg will handle ticketing and theater logistics and ADI will provide support, promote to ADI supporters in the area and someone from our rescue team may even be able to attend and do a Q&A!

More action adventure than traditional documentary, Lion Ark follows the world’s most ambitious and daring animal rescue.

Watch the Lion Ark trailer:

A shocking undercover investigation leads to a ban on animal circuses in Bolivia. But the circuses defy the law. The team behind the investigation return, track down the illegal circuses all over the country, and save every animal. The confrontations, heartache and risks the rescue team face are all captured before a joyous finale sees 25 lions airlifted to freedom. A story of bravery, compassion, camaraderie and determination. How a poor but proud country said ‘no’ to cruelty and how attitudes to animals were changed across an entire continent.

The lions emerge as the real stars and you find yourself rooting for the most aggressive of them all. An uplifting movie with twists and turns that is still gritty, surprising, informative and pulls no punches.

At last, a film with a serious message that will leave you smiling!

Share the story of Lion Ark with your friends, family and co-workers and inspire them to get involved with local campaigns and help raise funds and awareness for ADI’s life-saving work.
