The unprecedented documentary film “Skin Trade” made its red carpet Hollywood Debut on Thursday night, February 25, 2010 on the Paramount Pictures Lot. Produced by John Feldman and Ramy Hassan and Directed By Shannon Keith, the documentary film examines and exposes the fur trade industry and it’s unsuspecting customers.

The docufilm uncovers the shocking and disturbing reality of how animals are brutally, tortured, trapped and skinned alive all for the sake of fashion. It takes an honest and historical look inside the dark world of how fur is acquired and how glamour drives this demand and hides the ugly truth in the process.

Despite great attempts in recent years and much progress in helping people understand the origins of fur and the way it is made, contemporary culture still has an accepted attitude of cruelty, disregard and indifference when it comes to fur as a fashion statement. Although the documentary’s images are unsettling and devastating, one of the biggest bombshells was revealed about supposedly fur-friendly “faux fur.” It was uncovered that a large percentage of “Faux Fur” products use dog and cat fur to increase profits. (By the way, that’s murdered and skinned dogs and cats, folks-not just their hair shaved off). Consumers are also being misled by retailers who assure them that animals used for fur coats and such are humanely euthanized, intentionally hiding the truth of how the animals are gruesomely killed. Although this docufilm is not easy to watch, it is necessary and important to expose the truth about this unnecessary cruelty and torture. After viewing this documentary by Uncaged Films, a person has to ask themselves, what does fur lined fashion REALLY cost? To this, the answer is clear: integrity, dignity, compassion and a piece of our soul.
