A review from Jody Mumcian (Mar 01 2016):
"Tonight I had the privilege, and I do mean privilege, of attending a screening at the Pacific Design Center of the documentary movie “The Champions“, the story of the pit bulls rescued from Michael Vick’s chamber of horrors fighting ring. This was hosted by Best Friends Animal Society, one of the rescues that took in many of these dogs, showed them love and kindness for the first time in their lives, and eventually found homes for most of them. This is a beautiful, inspiring,… emotional film that focuses mainly on the wonderful dogs, the prejudices that they have faced, and their resilience in the face of the abuses that they endured. I highly recommend that you see the movie if you ever have the opportunity."
