Description

Though the shorter 52 minute version of the film (only available under the Digital Site License option) is better tailored to the length of a single class, the longer 93 minute version of the film includes more “teachable moments,” and is the preferred version of the film.

Description

The Champions is an inspirational story about the pit bulls rescued from the brutal fighting ring of former Atlanta Falcon’s star quarterback Michael Vick, and the organizations who risked everything to save them, despite pressure from PETA and The Humane Society to euthanize the dogs. It is a story of second-chances, redemption and hope. This uplifting documentary takes us on a journey about much more than just dogs—about prejudice, being misunderstood, the power of resilience, and the significance of the relationship we as humans have with animals. Featuring the lifesaving work of Best Friends Animal Society.

The Champions offers an outstanding opportunity for teaching not only humane and character education but also offers a vehicle for teaching young people essential critical thinking skills and the important values of compassion, responsibility, concern for the environment, animals and others.
The documentary can be used by teachers from kindergarten through university. There are no visuals of dogs being fought or visceral representations of people being cruel to animals, and the film is considered suitable for youth of all ages, by many.
Please Note:
– If you would like to host a screening for a room size larger than what is listed (500 for single screenings, 250 for university) please fill out the form for a price quote.

– We will ship the media to arrive 7 days prior to your screening.
