Post Premiere LIVE Q & A with Tim Gunn
Right after the film’s premiere, UnchainedTV hosted a LIVE Q&A with fashion legend Tim Gunn, of Project RunwayMaking the Cut fame, director/star Taimoor Choudhry and Arch Enemy lead singer Alissa White-Gluz. They’re all featured in the movie, along with a slew of animal rights leaders like PETA’s Ingrid Newkirk, Last Chance for Animals’ Chris DeRose, The Save Movement’s Anita Krajnc, The Fur-Bearers’ Lesley Fox and many more.
Fur Should NOT Be on Anyone’s Wish List
Organizers hope to reinvent the holiday shopping season as a time, not to waste money on cruel luxury items, but to stand up for compassion to animals and denounce products of violence like fur. Says UnchainedTV President Jane Velez-Mitchell, “We are so proud to be streaming this important movie to a global audience. And, we need your help in spreading the word. So, invite your friends over and throw a watch party for this game-changing movie, that could end fur farms in Canada, ground zero for this terrible industry.”
It Took 7 Years to Make This Game-Changing Film
The film’s director and star spent the better part of a decade working on this film. Jewelry magnate Taimoor Choudhry’s transformation from a conspicuous consumer of luxury goods to a passionate anti-fur activist starts when he asks a simple question: Who am I wearing? It turns out his fur trim is from a dog. Being a dog lover, this upends his world and propels him on a journey that finds him going undercover, and even wearing a wire, to a fur market. Says Choudhry, “I began my journey as an uninformed consumer and found myself working alongside Canadian politician, M.P. Nathaniel Erskine-Smith and animal rights lawyer Camille Labchuk, to introduce a federal bill to ban fur farms. Through my journey, I take viewers through interviews with amazing people who have dedicated their lives to fighting for animal rights. They have inspired me to make change and to keep persevering – to be a voice of the voiceless, the voice of our furry friends.”

Along with Choudhry and Gunn, Arch Enemy lead vocalist Alissa White-Gluz appears in the film as an anti-fur protester along with many leaders in the animal rights world, from PETA’s Ingrid Newkirk to Chris DeRose of Last Chance for Animals.

Watch Party Idea Started with One UnchainedTV Supporter
UnchainedTV is run almost entirely by volunteers. One of the network’s most active supporters is Niloofar Askgharian, of Dallas, Texas. She’s been a member of Animal Connection of Texas for almost two decades and organizes call-ins for UnchainedTV’s VoiceAmerica Wednesday podcasts. After one such podcast, she reached out to UnchainedTV declaring, “I am organizing a streaming party in my house with a vegan potluck preceding.” Voila… the idea of watch parties to promote Ending Real Fur was born.
Ellen Dent, a founder of Animal Alliance Network, also threw a watch party in Pennsylvania! She is featured with her daughter Aria, a budding animal activist.
