APR 09: Dr. John Sessa’s The Road to Yulin … and Beyond & S. Craig Zahler’s Hug Chickenpenny
The Road to Yulin … and Beyond covers the last two years of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules star Lisa Vanderpump’s non-profit, The Vanderpump Dog Foundation’s, mission trips to China to expose the torture that occurs during the annual Yulin Dog Meat Festival. Led by their business partner, Dr. John Sessa, the film gives an in depth look at the dichotomy between companionship-based human/canine relationships exhibited in many countries, and the horrific and brutal interactions that dogs face in parts of the world that have an unrestrained dog meat trade.
Dr. John Sessa joins Vicki today to help not only raise awareness of the heinous and barbaric treatment these dogs receive, but to show you how you can get involved as well in stopping these atrocities.
Dr. Sessa is the Executive Director of The Vanderpump Dog Foundation and co-founder of Vanderpump Pets. The Road to Yulin … and Beyond is Dr. Sessa’s directorial, writing and producing debut.
