The Animal Condition

The Animal Condition chronicles three and a half years of recent Australian history, when animal welfare grew from a fringe issue to a national focus. Four young people take an investigative road trip around Australia. Unafraid to ask questions they speak to all sides, from politicians to activists, farmers, Indigenous Australians, philosophers, scientists and immigrant-workers. Views on the subject change with each new encounter, leading to questions about society that go beyond the treatment of animals.
