How much do you know about what’s on your plate?

Saffron Walden Action on Climate Change (SWACC) have teamed up with Saffron Screen to present Eating Animals, a film which has been described as “one of the most important documentaries of our time”.

Showing at Saffron Screen on Thursday July 18th at 8pm. The film will be followed by a group discussion, giving viewers a chance to talk about the issues raised in the film.

Based on Jonathan Safran Foer’s best-selling book and narrated by Natalie Portman, ‘Eating Animals’ is an eye-opening documentary, taking a hard look at the environmental, economic and public heath consequences of factory farming.

‘Somehow, over time we have forgotten to think about where the food on our plate comes from. ‘Eating Animals’ reminds us that if we don’t take an interest, things can get out of hand. You will leave with a much better idea on how cheap meat reaches your plate, and a much better idea on whether you’ll continue to eat it,’ said Louise Yellowlees, SWACC founder.

Saffron Screen’s Marketing Manager, Hana Mallet said;
“We are really pleased to be hosting a screening of this important film with SWACC, a brilliant community group who are working incredibly hard to take action against climate change and protect our environment.”
