EATING ANIMALS
2017, IFC Films, 94 min, Dir: Christopher Dillon Quinn

Based on the best-selling book by Jonathan Safran Foer and narrated by co-producer Natalie Portman, this documentary is an urgent, eye-opening look at the environmental, economic and public health 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’s 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. Spotlighting farmers who have pushed back against industrial agriculture with more humane practices, EATING ANIMALS offers attainable, common-sense solutions to a growing crisis while making the case that ethical farming is not only an animal-rights issue but one that affects every aspect of our lives.
