Description

How much do you know about the food that’s on your plate?

Based on the bestselling book by Jonathan Safran Foer, narrated by co-producer Natalie Portman, and directed by Christopher Quinn (GOD GREW TIRED OF US), EATING ANIMALS 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 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, commonsense 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.

A Panel discussion with filmmaker Christopher Quinn, Santa Monica Mayor Pro Tempore and EVP/Chief Strategy Officer for innogy eMobility US, Terry O'Day and Urban Farmer, Niels Thorlaksson will take place after the film.

The panel will be moderated by Ann Gentry, Founder - Real Food Daily
