Horse Slaughter: Controversial Horse Slaughter Documentary Premieres Sunday

LOS ANGELES (KTLA) -- A premiere screening of a controversial film examining domestic and wild horse slaughter in America will take place Sunday afternoon.

"A Nation Betrayed, Saving America's Horses" will be held at Laemmle's Sunset 5 at 12:45p.m. with a media line to follow.

Directed by Katia Louise, the feature-length documentary film combines testimony, undercover footage, and true life stories to depict a country divided on the issue of horse cruelty in America. Pro- and anti-slaughter arguments are made. Environmental risks of horse slaughter and risks associated with consumption of horse meat are also explored.

National non-profit organization In Defense of Animals (IDF) has shown support for the film.

Michael Blake of Dances With Wolves, Randal Kleiser of Grease, and Paul Sorvino of Goodfellas are some of those involved and scheduled to attend.

Horses are becoming the most recent victims of the economic slump as more and more are mistreated and abandoned each day.
