a library of voices

This growing collection of interviews brings together diverse perspectives and experiences from all parts of the United States, with the common theme of humans in relationship with animals. Through this clarifying lens, big picture beliefs surface about social systems and industry, as well as ethics, religion, politics, social movements, capitalism, health, science, and more. Selections from these interviews also appear in the project's short and long documentary films. Below each clip you'll find a link to participant pages with complete interviews and information about that person and how we encountered each other.
