Lion Ark US Tour

Posted: 3 October 2016. Updated: 8 November 2016


Lion Ark embarks on a special, two-week, “Lion Freedom” US theatrical tour in November (7th to 22nd) with plans to screen in Boston, Chicago, New York, Washington DC, Portland, Atlanta, Seattle, Jersey City, and Oakland.

Every screening will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers and rescue team and a special short, previewing footage from the recent incredible rescue of over 100 animals in Peru and Colombia.

All funds raised will go to a huge lion habitat construction program for over 30 lions rescued by Animal Defenders International (ADI) from circuses in South America and flown home to South Africa. Huge ADI enclosures of natural bush are being built for the lions at Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary.

This is a great opportunity to see the multi-award winning film on a big screen, to get an insight into the massive rescue in Peru, meet the people behind this work AND help animals! A feel-good and empowering film – a great night out.
