    Maximum Tolerated Dose film screening

    "A look inside modern animal experimentation with the animals who lived through it and the people who walked away.” Maximum Tolerated Dose is the first feature-length documentary by Decipher Films. 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.

    This event will be the finale screening date of the Open The Cages East Coast Tour and feature a presentation by Tino Verducci and Dr. Lauren Corman. Following the screening there will be a short Q&A with the film's director Karol Orzechowski
