This film depicts how modern food production companies employ technology to maximize efficiency, consumer safety and profit. It consists mainly of actual working situations without voice-over narration or interviews as the director tries to let viewers form their own opinion on the subject. The names of the companies where the footage was filmed are purposely not shown. The director’s goal is to provide a realistic view on the internal workings of multiple food production companies in our modern society.
I was told about this film a few years ago by one of my mentors, and even though it is a silent documentary, the graphics and imagery put together will glue the viewers eye to the screen. It’s choreography is powerful it has become an award winning 2005 documentary directed, co-produced, film by Nikolaus Geyrhalter. The script was co-written by Wolfgang Widerhofer and Nikolaus Geyrhalter.
The interesting part is that the slaughter houses viewed in this film are all situated in Europe where the food handling laws are much higher than the rest of the world.
