Eating Animals 15

BUY TICKETS 8pm Thursday 18 July
Presented in conjunction with Changing Conversations and Saffron Walden Action on Climate Change (SWACC) and followed by a discussion about issues raised in the film.

DIRECTOR Christopher Dillon Quinn

An eye-opening look at the environmental, economic and public health consequences of factory farming.

How much do you know about the food that’s on your plate? Based on Jonathan Safran Foer’s best-selling book and narrated by Natalie Portman, this documentary is an eye-opening look at the environmental, economic and public health consequences of factory farming. The film charts how farming has gone from local and sustainable to a corporate monster offering cheap food at the cost of exploiting animals, using antibiotics and hormones and polluting the environment.
(2017 UK / India / Germany / China / USA 95 mins)

Christopher Quinn’s film is far more than a trip down memory lane, though. Based on the book by Jonathan Safran Foer, it reveals, little by little, the impact of factory farming on the environment … you find yourself absorbing some mind-boggling facts … if giving up meat altogether feels like a step too far, watch Eating Animals for further suggestions. It could be the most important film you see all year.  Sarah Kent, The Arts Desk
