Product description

...this is a wonderful and heart-warming film about a truly inspirational woman. Ricky Gervais ...inspirational, uplifting and empowering - Jill Robinson proves that one person can change the world and make it a better place. Chris Packham Orange Planet Pictures presents the first in a series of films about remarkable and inspiring animal welfare heroes. Jill Robinson: to the Moon and Back. With nothing more than her peaceful determination and resolve, Jill Robinson confronted possibly the worst form of animal cruelty ever witnessed from the hands of man - bear bile farming. Across China and Vietnam, over 10,000 Asiatic black bears (moon bears) exist as prisoners in tiny coffin size cages. Deprived of all but the most basic necessities to keep them alive and forced to endure unimaginable pain and torment for up to 30 years, their abdomens and gall bladders are crudely penetrated by catheters to collect bile for traditional Asian medicine, beauty products and even wine. In 1993, a British woman called Jill Robinson took a stand against this practice. With nothing more than her resolve, Jill peacefully and intelligently began an animal welfare movement that has now saved hundreds of bears, created two beautiful sanctuaries spanning over 180,000 square metres and has brought about a foreseeable end to bile farming in Vietnam. Narrated by actor, Peter Egan, this is Jill Robinson's journey told from her own deeply personal and often emotional perspective. With contributions from Downton Abbey actress Lesley Nicol, Born Free founder, Virginia McKenna OBE and Guns 'n' Roses drummer Matt Sorum, we find out how, why and where it all began. From Jill's life-changing moment to the creation of a global organisation, this is the remarkable story of one of the world's most inspirational animal welfare heroes.
