Dominion is the follow up to the 2014 documentary Lucent which explored the cruelty of the Australian pig industry. Dominion has a much broader scope of focus and explores the many different ways animals are used and abused for profit in Australia. The film explores six ways that we interact with animals: companion animals (pets), wildlife, scientific research, entertainment, clothing, and food. The film challenges and questions whether we have the right to claim “dominion” over the animal kingdom.
With high-quality drone and hidden camera footage, the film shows the stark reality that animals face and the impact their exploitation has on them and in our society in general.
Please note that this documentary does contain violent and graphic scenes and is not recommended for sensitive viewers. Not recommended for viewers younger than 18.
