Produced by well-known vegan Natalie Portman, Eating Animals is the film is the feature-length adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer's critically acclaimed book of the same name, that starts out with a simple question - where do our eggs, dairy and meat come from?
Looking at the way we eat back though supply chains, via farming, back to its roots, the film explores the notion of stepping away from the practices of the past 40 years that have polluted our environment, endangered our health, and caused us all to be complicit in the inhumane treatment of animals.
Looking at the costs incurred as the United States has become dominated by massive industrial complexes designed to feed the masses, Eating Animals paints a picture of a future where traditional farming is no longer a distant memory, but is instead the only way forward.
Director/producer Christopher Quinn (Eating Animals, God Grew Tired of Us) joins us for a post-screening discussion.
