From DDT and Hormones to Food Security

LoveMEATender

Manu Coeman
Doc | 2011 | 63min | Belgium

Meat production increases every year, but many people still have no idea what's on their plate or what it has taken to get it there. "We eat meat, but killing animals doesn't really happen," says philosopher Florence Burgat. She is one of the many experts who have their say in director Manu Coeman's fierce indictment of the industrialized meat industry. LoveMEATender is packed with facts and figures, to demonstrate the consequences of our excessive meat consumption: for the animals, for the earth, but also for our own bodies.

Canned Dreams

Katja Gauriloff
Doc | 2011 | 81min | Finland

A simple can of ravioli propels this spectacular 30,000-kilometre, eight-country journey through all phases of production. A voyage with glimpses of disconcerting realities, from a single mother toiling in one of the biggest open pit mines in Brazil to the shelf of a grocery store in Finland. Along the way, the workers whose calloused hands mine, raise and harvest each ingredient reveal their dreams and hopes. Sumptuous photography and sound design make an eloquent statement about our modern, globalized world, making us aware of the hundreds of invisible people who prepare the food we eat every day.
