How much do you know about the food that's on your plate? Based on the bestselling book by Jonathan Safran Foer
and narrated by Natalie Portman, Eating Animals
is an eye-opening look at the consequences of factory farming. Tracing the history of food production in the United States, the film charts how farming has gone from local and sustainable to a corporate Frankenstein monster that offers cheap eggs, meat, and dairy at a steep cost: the exploitation of animals; the risky use of antibiotics and hormones; and the pollution of our air, soil, and water. Meet the activists, scientists and farmers who are offering alternative solutions to this growing crisis and contemplate how ethical farming is more than just an animal rights issue.
