‘There Was A Killing’ Documents Death of Activist, Regan Russell
‘There Was A Killing’
Director: Shaun Monson
Producer: Shaun Monson
Release date: 2020
Running time: 28.29
Directed by award-winning filmmaker Shaun Monson (Earthlings, Unity), and featuring never-before-seen footage, ‘There Was A Killing’ documents the circumstances leading to the death of Animal Activist, Regan Russell, who was killed on 19 June 2020 when a pig transport truck ran over her. On the morning of fatal day, seven activists from the animal rights group Toronto Pig Save were demonstrating outside Sofina Foods’, Fearmans slaughterhouse in Burlington, Canada. The film provides first-hand accounts and in-depth analysis from attorneys Robert Monson, Lisa Bloom, and David Simon exposing corruption and a cover-up that has allowed the animal agriculture industry to avoid the legal and economic consequences of their behaviour through a law some may see as a license to kill. What began as a peaceful vigil (giving water to pigs and offering them comfort moments before their death) and protest against “ag-gag” Bill 156 soon ended in horror for vegan activist Regan Russell. No criminal charges were brought against the driver due to the passing of Bill 156 just one day before, a statute designed to protect transporters from animal rights activists.
