We know the extraordinary Lisa Vanderpump for being a woman who can do it all – she’s a spectacular, television personality, author, restauranteur and the list goes on and on. However, one of Lisa Vanderpump’s most inspiring endeavors yet is her work to help put an end to the Yulin Dog Meat Festival and all of the barbaric treatment towards dogs all over the world. Lisa Vanderpump, Ken Todd and the Executive Director of the Vanderpump Dog Foundation, Dr. John Sessa, held a special premiere of their documentary, The Road to Yulin… and Beyond at the LA Awareness Festival back in October 2017. They were joined by other amazing celebrities including Lisa Rinna, Leona Lewis, Maria Menounos and many others to help bring awareness towards this moving documentary. In fact, The Road to Yulin… and Beyond even won the Audience Choice Award at the event.
It has just been announced that The Road to Yulin… and Beyond has been exclusively released on Prime Video. You can watch this eye-opening documentary by streaming it on Amazon Prime with a Prime subscription or by renting or purchasing the documentary here for those in the US and here for those in the UK.
According to the press release, “The documentary, a first for Vanderpump and her husband Kenneth Todd, covers the last two years of their 501(c)(3) 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 and the Executive Director of the Foundation, Dr. John Sessa, the film gives an in depth look at the dichotomy between the empathetic, 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.”
The documentary truly gives people the push to take action and help make this world a better place to live in, especially for the wonderful dogs who make life so much more worth living. The recent episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills showcased footage from the premiere of The Road to Yulin… and Beyond and was a terrific platform to continue to get the word out about this emotional documentary.
Lisa Vanderpump said, “I am happy that Evolution Media and Bravo have continued to support and follow this journey as we try to put an end to the Yulin Dog Meat Festival. With this platform, I hope to not only bring more attention to what is happening in Yulin, but also educate and inspire a new generation to fight this barbaric practice.” (source: press release)
“Our hope for the documentary is to raise global awareness about the important issues it explores. I thank Prime Video for distributing what has been one of the hardest, yet rewarding journeys of my life,” said Dr. John Sessa. (source: press release)
The Road to Yulin… and Beyond is a staggering documentary that evokes change and it shows that if we all join together, we can help stop the Yulin Dog Meat Festival and give these dogs a loving and caring home.
