(Unser täglich Brot, Nikolaus Geyrhalter, Austria 2005, 92 min., German and Arabic w/subtitles)
Curator’s Choice! We are what we eat. But do we really “see” what we are eating? With almost no dialogue and a gorgeous cinematography, this haunting exploration of food factories across unnamed European countries brings the viewer face to face with the ethical dilemmas of nutrition in the industrial world. There is no advocacy message here, neither for organic farming or animal rights; images are allowed to speak for themselves, with a sobriety and a compassion rarely seen in a work of non-fiction.
