    Film Synopsis

    Beyond the Myth: A Film About Breed Discrimination

    Unfairly known as violent killers, Pit Bulls have suffered from the stigma of negative media coverage that has lead to city-wide bans across the country. This breed-specific legislation has torn pets away from families, and killed thousands of innocent dogs in cities like Denver, Miami, Cincinnati, and San Francisco.

    The film investigates the myths associated with these breeds, challenges the idea that they are inherently vicious, and presents eye-opening research regarding the media’s role in influencing people’s opinion on dog attacks.

    Stripping away the preconceptions to show the loving companions they can be, Beyond the Myth is an important, must see film for all dog lovers.

    Featured Review

    “Beyond the Myth takes a powerfully candid look at the media and public bias that surrounds “pit bull-type” dogs, as well as the laws that discriminate against them and their owners. The film allows the audience to experience the fear and frustration of families affected by breed bans, and puts the panic-driven hype into perspective with “real” statistics and first-person accounts. Beyond the Myth is a “must see” documentary for any and all dog lovers.”
