One such group, RAL’s Gracie’s Guardians, is hosting a screening of a new documentary which “investigates the myths associated with the breed, challenges the idea that they are inherently vicious, and present eye-opening research regarding the media’s role in influencing people’s opinion on ‘pit bulls.’”
“Beyond the Myth” will show at 2pm at the Grace Street Theater (934 West Grace Street, Richmond, VA 23220); each $10 ticket will benefit Gracie’s Guardians, as well as fund continued distribution of the movie.
While the seats are likely to be filled with area pet lovers who are already fans of and advocates for the breed, this movie is really for those who don’t know much about pit bulls – those who’ve never visited a home where pit bulls are cherished as members of the family, get dressed up for Halloween, and make regular appearances on the family Christmas card.
Tickets for the Saturday screening are available online. Please come out to view this important movie; producer Libby Sherrill will be in attendance to share her experience of making the movie, along with former Vick dog Gracie (after which Gracie’s Guardians is named).
