This is an animal dying on a fur farm in China. It grew up in a barren cage the size of a newspaper, living off meat processing waste deemed unfit even for pet food production. When it reached adult size, it was yanked out of the cage and received a couple of blows to the head, after which it was hung upside down & slowly skinned alive. After the fur was pulled off over its head, the agonizing body was thrown onto a pile of carcasses, where it expired in the most horrible way you can (or should I say, can’t) imagine.

Besides bludgeoning, the killing methods on fur farms include gassing, electrocution, poisoning with strychnine, or breaking the animals’ necks. Most of these methods don’t exclude the possibility of the animal regaining consciousness while its fur is being… removed.

This is the true cost of a “fabulous”, “glamorous” fur coat or collar, not the amount of money on the price tag.

Smash the face of every piece of shit fur industry supporter out there.

People think I am lying when I say animals survive the “killing” process frequently.  I’m guessing that the videographer didn’t have to wait a long time for this shot.

A Fine Line official trailer. from Summits of My Life on Vimeo.

A FINE LINE premiered on December 17th at the Palau de la Musica Catalana, Barcelona to three packed screenings. With Kilian on hand to present his film, the audience were thrilled to hear him speak about the first year of Summits of My Life.

The film is available for download now summitsofmylife.com

“Someone said we are our dreams, that if we don’t dream we are no longer alive.

A Fine Line takes us on a breathtaking journey over the spectacular snow covered peaks of the Alps as we join a small group of extraordinary mountain athletes in their pursuit of happiness and fulfillment.

Kilian Jornet is an exceptional sportsman. At only 25, the ski mountaineering racer and ultra trail runner is already a multiple record holder and winner of numerous world titles in ski alpinism and mountain marathons. For him and others born in the mountains, the challenges and dangers of their environment are part of everyday life. The search for happiness can come at a very high price, but the pursuit of their passion remains an overwhelming motivation.

“We can’t be sure we’ll find it, but we’re going in search of happiness.”
