Our Daily Bread
With dispassionate objectivity, Austrian documentary filmmaker Nikolaus Geyrhalter lifts the veil on modern industrial food production to present a glimpse of a world few of us have ever seen – or are willing to think about. Avoiding conventional narrative techniques, Geyrhalter lets the images speak for themselves. The result is a coldly beautiful and often disturbing visual essay illustrating what goes on in slaughterhouses, manufacturing plants and large dusty fields to process and package our food. “Unblinking… superb” – New York Times.
