The Animal People, from executive producer Joaquin Phoenix, follows the journey of six young activists who find themselves indicted as terrorists by the United States government. Featuring expansive interviews with the six activists spanning more than a decade, rare archival footage – including never-before-seen surveillance footage, wiretaps, and government documents, The Animal People is a chilling portrait of what happens when activism rattles the institutions of power.
