Gala World Premiere: “A Prayer For Compassion”

Tuesday, March 05, 2019 8:00 pm

Reserve Tickets

This documentary is the journey of Student Academy Award winner Thomas Jackson to discover the seeds of compassion for all the world’s religions, and to suggest to those who identify as religious or spiritual that veganism is the next logical step.

Journey with Thomas — and, at times, his enchanting 3-year-old daughter, Melody — on a voyage of discovery across America, to the UN Climate Conference in Marrakesh, and to India where the sacred cow is caught in the realities of the dairy and leather industries. Learn from such luminaries as Will Tuttle, PhD, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Suzy Welch, Jeffrey Cohan, Bruce Friedrich, Milton Mills, MD, Charles Camosy, PhD, Sailesh Rao, PhD, and Victoria Moran, some of whom will join Thomas this evening for the post-screening Q & A.

Premiere & VIP reception host committee:
Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams
Sharon Gannon, cofounder of Jivamukti Yoga
David Greene, NY Vegetarian and Vegan Meetup
Jack and Suzy Welch, Authors of Winning & animal rights activist

Doors at 7:30pm
