I Am an Animal: The Story of Ingrid Newkirk and PETA

Ever wonder what really goes on at PETA headquarters? Or what a day in the life of PETA President Ingrid Newkirk is truly like? How we pick our targets and plan our campaigns?

HBO and Stick Figure Productions give you an inside look at the day-to-day goings-on at PETA and in Ingrid’s life in the award-winning documentary I Am an Animal: The Story of Ingrid Newkirk and PETA.

Ingrid Newkirk is perhaps the most famous animal rights activist in the world. She’s fearless, tough, and tireless. A brilliant strategist with a wicked sense of humor, Ingrid is probably the most dedicated person I’ve ever met.

She is the first person in the office each day—usually well before dawn—and the last person to leave each night, and she never asks anything of anyone else that she wouldn’t do herself. Her lifelong quest to make the world a better place for all animals has touched countless people and saved millions of animals.

In I Am an Animal, you’ll meet the woman who founded PETA and changed the world, get a glimpse inside her daily life, and find out what makes her tick. Watch a sneak peek of the film that won the award for “Best Documentary” at the Hamptons Film Festival before its HBO premiere, and see what Ingrid has to say about it.

If you’ve been inspired to help animals by Ingrid’s tireless efforts but aren’t sure where to start, we suggest taking the Veg Pledge. Ridding your diet of meat is the easiest and best thing you can do to help animals. And it’s good for your own health and the Earth too. Get the flesh off your plate today—take the Veg Pledge. Ingrid and millions of animals will be incredibly grateful.
