Storyline

Fur is sexy, beautiful, sensuous and luxurious. Nothing feels better against your skin, and beautiful, sexy, successful people wear it. Fur is also environmentally friendly and is therefore a sustainable resource. These are the campaigns the fur industry uses to get people to commit the ultimate atrocities permitted against animals. Consumers are misled by retailers who assure them that animals used for fur are humanely euthanized, intentionally hiding the reality of how the animals are hideously killed. Step inside the world of SKIN TRADE. Hundreds of hours of interviews with insiders, designers, leaders and celebrities compiled in a heart punching documentary directed and produced by award winning director Shannon Keith. This film lends a voice to the voiceless whose skin is ripped from them while often still alive. Understand what makes this savage industry tick and what it will take to change it. Whether you are a fan of fur or repulsed by the thought, you owe it to yourself to ... Written by Shannon Keith

Essential Viewing
24 April 2017 | by Cheepnis-Deep13See all my reviews

Very few people are aware of the horrors that the fur industry inflicts upon innocent beings. In this revealing look behind the industry lies, the viewer learns a brutal truth. These animals are neither raised in humane conditions, nor "humanly killed". In exchange for a moment of vanity, many people turn their eyes away from the vicious cruelty involved in producing fur products. This film forces the viewer to focus on the reality caused by their actions instead.

I found the editing (Gene Blalock) to be top-notch, as the viewer is taken from one interview after another, not once feeling as though this was simply slapped together. The superb pacing meant that I was never bored with interviews, nor overwhelmed with graphic imagery.

Award-winning director Shannon Keith is no amateur when it comes to producing hard-hitting exposes about animal exploitation industries. Her earlier work, "Behind the Mask", skillfully revealed the hearts and minds of animal rights activists, showing them to be the compassionate warriors that they really are. Her most recent film "Sanctuary" is a look at some of the animal sanctuaries which provide homes for monkeys that were previously used in the entertainment industry and as victims of cruel research experiments. Ms. Keith's fine talents and obvious passion about the subject shine through in all three films.
