Made by filmmaker Marc Pierschel, the film looks at a future without animal agriculture and meat. The narrative is almost post-apocalyptic, with a world where animals thrive without fear of being killed for human benefit and consumption.
The film not only looks at how the end of animal agriculture would affect animals, but also how it would affect the environment and humans. Pierschel meets with Esther the Wonder Pig who became an internet sensation, and he also “talks to pioneers leading the vegan movement in Germany; visits the first fully vegetarian city in India; witnesses rescued farm animals enjoying their newfound freedom; observes the future food innovators making meat and cheese without the animals, even harvesting ‘bacon’ from the ocean, and much more.”
The film encourages people to think about the food that they eat, specifically non-vegans. With the planet feeling the strain of animal agriculture, people need to change their attitudes to diet and food, and become more aware of the carbon footprint of their food, alongside the ethical implications of the dietary choice.
The film has already been premiered in Austria, and the US, where it was met with a warm reception and positive reviews. However, if you’re unable to get to a screening, you can host a screening or purchase the film on DVD in some countries.
