'CONTRA LA TORTURA ANIMAL', EXPOSICIÓN DE CARTELES

Now that there is an open debate in Catalonia about the prohibition or not of bullfighting, the University Venue in Alicante opens an exhibition called "Contra la tortura animal" (Against animal torture). The exhibition is the result of the "I Premio de Carteles Contra la Tortura Animal en Tradiciones y Fiestas" (First Award for Posters Against Animal Torture in Traditions and Fiestas) organized by the Asociación Universitaria Preparacción, Asociación para la Promoción de Estudios, Participación y Acción Social and the organization AnimaNaturalis.

The event opens next Wednesday January 13 at 8:15pm. Besides the posters, the exhibition includes some texts by the poet Ángel Padilla and paintings by Aïda Gascón. "Contra la tortura animal" will be at the Sala Miguel Hernández of the University Venue in Alicante until January 30.

Open debate
The exhibition also includes a video forum that will take place on January 29, in which the film "Animal" by Ángel Mora will be shown. "Animal" is considered the first Spanish documentary that reflects the opposition to bullfighting. The premier took place at the Sitges Film Festival in 2007 and it had very good reviews. After the showing, there will be a debate on tauromachy and some of the people participating will be the spokespersons of the organizing associations. It will take place at 8:15pm at the Sala Miguel Hernández of the University Venue.

The event is free, but attendance is limited due to room capacity.
