Indiana State Premiere of Award-Winning Lion Ark comes to The Alhambra Theatre Film Festiv

by David Thompson Wednesday, Mar. 18, 2015 at 5:35 PM

Award-Winning Lion Ark comes to Indiana!

March 17, 2015, Evansville, IN – Lion Ark, a film about the dramatic rescue of 25 lions from circuses in Bolivia and their amazing journey to a sanctuary in Colorado, is screening at the Alhambra Theatre Film Festival.

This will be one of the first US screenings since Lion Ark signed a worldwide distribution deal with ITV GE, who showcased the film at MIPCOM Cannes last year to global media markets. Lion Ark will have a selected US theatrical tour in April before being available on TV and Video On Demand.

Described by critics as “uplifting” and “the feel-good movie of the year,” Lion Ark has taken the film festival circuit by storm winning eight awards at sell out screenings and securing an NAACP Image Award nomination for Outstanding International Motion Picture.

See the Lion Ark trailer www.LionArkthemovie.com.

What is engaging audiences in a new way is that Lion Ark is more action adventure style than traditional documentary. The film tells the story of a team from Animal Defenders International (ADI) that secured a ban on animal circuses in Bolivia, and then, when the circuses defied the law, set about rescuing every animal.

Lion Ark is all live action and commentary, close up and personal, right in the thick of the rescue. As close as you get to these animals, understanding them and the effects of circus life. See the undercover investigations that changed a continent; the lobbying; the enforcement of the circus animal ban in Bolivia. Circuses that defy the new law are tracked down, animals saved, and a joyous finale sees 25 lions airlifted to freedom.

Lion Ark Director Tim Phillips (ADI Vice President) and Producer Jan Creamer (ADI President) – who also led the ADI rescue team will be doing a Q&A following the screening. Both are flying up from Peru, where they are in the middle of another huge rescue which will see 33 lions rescued from circuses by ADI flown to The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Colorado.

WHAT: LION ARK at The Alhambra Theatre Film Festival
WHEN: Saturday, April 11, 7pm
WHERE: Tropicana Events Plaza, 421 NW Riverside Evansville, IN 47708
TICKETS: $10 http://www.lionarkthemovie.com/screenings


Tim Phillips, Director of Lion Ark says: “The events recorded in Lion Ark inspired four more countries to pass bans in South America and now we are preparing to bring 30 more lions from those circuses here. This is a story that is still unfolding and we are looking forward to telling audiences about this latest mission too.”

The LION ARK rescue was funded entirely by donations, including a significant gift from legendary US TV ‘Price is Right’ game show host Bob Barker. A similar operation – Spirit of Freedom – is now underway in Peru, where ADI is once again assisting the authorities to enforce its animal circus ban, having successfully secured the legislation. ADI currently has 33 lions, 33 monkeys and many other native wild animals at its temporary rescue center.
