Documentary Screening of “A Dog Named Gucci” on December 17th, 2017
Many thanks to Zsofia Budai for sending in the following information:
Our aim with Conserv’Session is to raise awareness of conservation related issues such as animal extinctions, illegal trade, animal welfare, waste issues, climate change by screening documentaries and inviting expert speakers to discuss about the subjects. Our team tries to organize this event every month. Entrance is always free and the event is open to everybody. We always try to provide free drinks and snacks and leave some time after the discussion for people to meet and interact.
On the 17th this month, we will screen the documentary “A Dog Named Gucci” with Japanese subtitles and we will have Elizabeth Oliver and Jeff Bryant as guest speakers after the movie to discuss about the situation in Japan. The event is bilingual. Please have a look at our past sessions on the following links and check the flyer (above) for this month’s event.
The event will be held in the Science Seminar House (京都大学北部キャンパス理学部セミナーハウス) of Kyoto University’s North Campus from 3 – 5 pm. No registration required!
About the Movie:
A Dog Named Gucci is a 2015 documentary film by Gorman Bechard that chronicles the story of an Alabama puppy set on fire, and the man (Professor Doug James) who came to his rescue. Gucci and Doug James would eventually bring about a historic change in Alabama’s animal cruelty laws through legislation honoring Gucci.
