(UNSER TÄGLICH BROT, Nikolaus Geyrhalter, Austria 2005, 92 min.)
Without commentary and using pristinely photographed images right out of a chilling science-fiction movie, this fascinating new visual essay examines how food and meat are commonly prepared in the contemporary world. Detailing the breeding and slaughtering of animals, as well as the harvesting of fruits and vegetables, director Geyrhalter reveals a sometimes shocking, dehumanized vision worthy of Stanley Kubrick. Our Daily Bread may forever change your ideas of how food gets to your table.
