Plot Summary

Charlie Cranehill, an animal liberator wanted by the United States government for domestic terrorism, emerges from the underground to coordinate a nationwide action as his estranged CEO father tries to find him before the FBI does. The film simultaneously follows a young woman who works for an animal welfare organization fighting within the system to establish more humane treatment of farmed animals. Bringing their critically-acclaimed documentary style to a fiction narrative, Open Road Films weaves a timely story about those who risk their freedom for the lives of others.

Ground Breaking-Political Thriller!!

Bold Native is not an animal rights documentary. This is a groundbreaking, scripted film that portrays the complicated issues facing today's animal rights activists. The movie is a first of it's kind in the sense that it deals with the many different strategies and the wide variety of advocacy positions that exist side by side in the modern animal welfare/rights/liberation movement.
No other film has engaged itself with these topics using fiction, hypothetical situations, character development and a suspenseful storyline. This movie also exposes an important fact... that we live in a time where corporations, (in alliance with our government) are cowardly using the fears of the masses regarding terrorism to silence the free speech of humans standing up for non human animal individuals being tortured, mutilated and brutally killed by the same corporations.

No other scripted film has dealt with the despicable and little known federal law called the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act which was set up by the corporations (industries who profit from killing animals) by paying off elected politicians. No other film has concerned itself with the emotional, psychological, compassionate and political motivations of so many human beings who risk their own freedom to fight for and liberate the nearly billions of non humans who are oppressed and killed every day.

It's nearly impossible to create anything new in the world of film that hasn't been done before. Hollywood has been going out of its way to make sure that everything it churns out.... has been made two or three times before and 'focused grouped' to a never ending insanity. Yet, Bold Native stands out as original among everything else recently released by the big machine which creates the same movies over and over. This is bold filmmaking to say the least.

The films logo of the HOPE piglet is a wonderful metaphor for the future of a possible state of the world. A state of the world where liberating the other animals from oppression and fighting for their rights will one day be seen as rational, sane and just. But the logo might also represent hope for a new more meaningful filmmaking that will "hopefully" start to include themes about the injustice and prejudices which the other species of the world must endure under human chauvinism.
Bold Native is the essence/definition of great revolutionary filmmaking and real HOPE.

Come on Hollywood....get on board! Come on people ...wake up and join the compassionate revolution. See this film now!

Bold Native is an awesome & unique narrative film about a young man’s epic journey as a member of the ALF (Animal Liberation Front). It has every element you could wish for in an exciting, groundbreaking film; adventure, suspense, romance, horror, humor, drama and an undeniably powerful message about freedom. I LOVE this film & I guarantee it will change your life for the better!!!

One of my favorite movies of all time.

I was fortunate enough to attend one of the initial screenings of the film to the public - I was blown away, the quality of the film, editing, and story is incredible considering the small size of the production team and budget!

I could get into the political, social, activist, and animal rights issues presented in the movie, but honestly, the best way to understand it all is to watch it for yourself.

That means buy it.

A truly eye-opening movie, produced by one of the most awesome casts out there.

Hopefully it gets into more big theaters soon!
