E A R T H L I N G S
The Documentary ScreenplayWritten by Shaun Monson
 
This is the screenplay for E
ARTHLINGS
in its final form, fromwhich the filmmakers worked. Although it is a documentary,I also considerE
ARTHLINGS
to be something of an anthologyfilm. As such, the movie contains footage contributed byseveral organizations, (including People for the EthicalTreatment of Animals, The Humane Society of the UnitedStates, Last Chance for Animals, Greenpeace, The SeaShepherd Conservation Society, Farm Sanctuary, StopHuntington Animal Cruelty, The Humane Farming Association,In Defense of Animals, and others). The film is narratedand features a soundtrack by two well-known vegans: JoaquinPhoenix and Moby. It also contains quotes and referencesfrom renowned animal welfare authors like Tom Regan, PeterSinger, John Robbins, Hans Ruesch, Matthew Scully, GailEisnetz, Amy Blount Achor and Steve Best. Along withmyself, the film was also co-produced by fellow animalactivists Persia White and Libra Max. Many more worthyindividuals contributed as well, and they are listed in theclosing credits. I am indebted to each of them for helpingme bring this very heartfelt project to light. Thank you.— Shaun MonsonLos Angeles, July2006

NARRATOR
Since we all inhabit the earth, all of us are considered
earthlings
. There is no sexism, no racism or
speciesism
inthe term earthling. It encompasses each and every one ofus: warm or cold blooded, mammal, vertebrate orinvertebrate, bird, reptile, amphibian, fish, and humanalike. Humans, therefore, being not the
only 
species onthe planet, share this world with millions of other livingcreatures, as we all evolve here together.
