Film

Dominion is a 2018 documentary film about the harmful impact on animals of animal husbandry in the production of meat, milk and eggs. It was directed and produced by Chris Delforce, and is the sequel to Delforce's 2014 documentary Lucent. While Lucent focused on pig farming, Dominion covers many types of animals, and attempts to "question the morality and validity of human dominion over the animal kingdom."

The film is divided into segments covering different species: Pigs, Egg-Laying Hens, Broiler (Meat) Chickens, Turkeys, Cows, Sheep, Goats, Fish, Rabbits, Minks, Foxes, Dogs, Horses, Camels, Mice, Exotic Animals, Seals & Dolphins, and a Conclusion by the narrators.

The film draws heavily on footage from the animal rights online resource Aussie Farms Repository[1] and makes use of hidden cameras and aerial drones.

Production

Dominion was announced in October 2015 with a Chuffed crowdfunding campaign which raised over $19,000.[2] In December 2015 the film received a grant from animal protection institute Voiceless.[3] An Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign raised over $63,000 by January 2018.[4]

Reception

Protests included the storming of abattoirs and the halting of traffic at Melbourne's busiest intersection during peak hour. Activists held signs promoting the website watchdominion.com where Dominion can be watched for free. [5]
