Now see the all new 20 second commercial for SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES, and move quickly to obtain advance tickets for the MO screening while supplies last.
There's a storm brewing in Kansas with proponents of horse slaughter milling around. Timing is pivotal for our horses, with the escalated push by foreign investors to reopen horse slaughter plants in the U.S., more and more horses are at risk of cruel and barbaric slaughter. But the international award winning film, SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES A NATION BETRAYED will soon be in Kansas and you know what happened to the wicked witch of the East when Dorothy's house landed on her.
Local community members have been up in arms staking their position against the threat of a proposed slaughterhouse for horses in MO. Special interest groups have been pushing to reopen horse slaughter plants across the country even though this so called industry devastates American communities and almost exclusively profits foreign interests.
The Kansas City screen's premiere will take place on Sunday, April 15th at 2:45PM at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. The auditorium offers the largest seating capacity of all the venues during the week long festival which begins Wednesday, April 11th.
Seating is expected to sell out for this very special screening. Missouri residents and neighboring communities are encouraged to purchase their tickets in advance for this landmark film. Now is your opportunity to buy tickets online to SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES A NATION BETRAYED.
"We are thrilled by the overwhelming amount of support from across the country for this important project," says film director Katia Louise. SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES' fans are showing their support and have helped to sponsor eye catching signage, plus a special 20 second commercial for the film which will play at the top of every movie in the AMC Kansas City Film Festival. 98 movies will run in 5 theaters for 5 full days and nights, where America's horses will be front and center to movie goers from all ages and backgrounds.

"The impact of SAVING AMERICA'S HORSES A NATION BETRAYED is visceral and awe inspiring at the same time.

"Masterfully presented! - Powerful and compelling!”
—Larry Lindner, New York Times best-selling writer
