|Maximum Tolerated Dose|
|Part art film, part documentary, investigates the often hidden and disturbing world of animal experimentation.|
Maximum Tolerated Dose (Karol Orzechowski, United States, 2012; 90 min.) Equal parts found-footage mash-up, verité investigation, and artful meditation, the film charts the lives of both humans and non-humans who have experienced animal testing first-hand, with hauntingly honest testimony of scientists and lab technicians whose ethics demanded they choose a different path, as well as the simultaneously heartwarming and heartbreaking stories of animals who have seen both sides of the cage. MTD aims to re-ignite the debate about animal testing by bringing these rarely-heard perspectives to the fore.
