Q&A after the screening with Anna herself and the filmmakers Craig and Damon Foster


What if you could talk to animals and have them talk back to you?


We all have the spirit to communicate on this level but due to modern society's distractions we have lost the ability.


- Anna

Anna Breytenbach, the animal communicator has dedicated her life to what she calls interspecies communication. She sends detailed messages to animals through pictures and thoughts. She then receives messages of remarkable clarity back from the animals, messages that she can decode to understand what they are saying to her.


But how can this be proved? How to know if what Anna is saying about the communication is true?


Swati Thiyagarajan, India's top environmental journalist sets out to investigate Anna's claims. At first the journalist is extremely sceptical, but time after time Anna manages to diagnose animals problems and communicate information that is corroborated by the animals’ caregivers and the scientists who study them.


Just through communication with the animals Anna can feel the scars hidden under a monkey’s fur, she can understand the detailed story that is causing a bird’s trauma, she can feel how a baboon troop views the humans around them: the whole animal kingdom comes alive.

Animals are drawn to her, immediately sensing her gift: wild birds land on her shoulders, fish gather around her when she swims, and wild baboons lie on her body as if she is one of their own.



Anna, "When I am communicating something to an animal I am silently forming a sentence in my head or a mental image and simply projecting that and I imagine it landing in their space, without physically talking. When I get a response from an animal it is in that universal language, something that my brain can translate into images, emotions, thoughts, feelings or words as a way for me to understand what just happened.”


The film culminates in a remarkable scene where Anna completely shifts a black leopard's behaviour through her communication. In front of the journalist’s eyes the leopard transforms from a deadly angry beast into a relaxed and content big cat.


Anna takes the viewer on a journey back in time to the source of her art, the indigenous hunter gatherers who used to practise animal communication as part of their daily lives. African Bushmen hunters, Native American elders and Aboriginal trackers tell stories of how they and their ancestors used the same skills that Anna has practised to communicate with animals.


This is the first full length documentary film on the art of animal communication. Even the hardened sceptic might look at nature and animals in a different light after seeing this remarkable woman at work.

Invitation to Rethinking Animal Protection

What you can expect:
You’ll get to see leading academics and lawyers answering one of the most important questions for animals today:

Does the law afford sufficient protection to animals? 

Why attend:
The overwhelming suffering of animals is a crisis in our society. Yes, it is one of many crises that need attention. But for most other crises, the victims have our collective outrage.

Not so for the animals. Voices speaking out for animals remain a small minority.


We need urgently to think afresh on animal protection, and this seminar is designed to tackle the issue head-on by looking directly at animal protection in the law, what it offers, if it’s enough, and how we can begin changing it.
