Voices from the Abyss is a 60-minute documentary film about veganism and the animal rights movement around the world, expressing the hopes and fears of a generation. The film is the vision of Producer and Director Carla López, who has been a vegetarian since she was five years old. At an early age, Carla understood that animals are not mere objects, but instead sentient beings and our equals on this planet. Voices from the Abyss is largely her point of view as a director on an ongoing fight for a change. Carla is herself an activist and a vegan and she has continued to evolve, absorbing many different influences and taking on new creative forms to spread the word about the philosophy and ethics of veganism.
Torture and death or mistreatment is the tragic fate of millions of animals in genocidal proportions every year. Her film will denounce these horrific animal rights violations, denouncing the perpetrators of this violence, and telling the story of the struggle of people resisting, protesting, and even rescuing and liberating animals even if it means going to jail. Weaving together moving interviews and archival footage (of protests' slaughterhouses, zoos, circus, political events, and festivals) Voices from the Abyss will portray on film the individual journeys of vegans and animal rights activists and their legacy, dreams, and the enduring power of hope. Through interviews and the use of undercover film footage, photos, and other archival material, Voices from the Abyss will depict the lives of grassroots activists and experts from around the world that are denouncing and fighting all forms of animal suffering and abuse.
