/*Our Daily Bread*/


*Best Film*, Ecocinema International - Athens Grand Prix, Festival 
International du Film d'Environnemen - Paris

Welcome to the world of industrial food production and high-tech 
farming! To the rhythm of conveyor belts and immense machines, the film 
looks without commenting into the places where food is produced in 
Europe: monumental spaces, surreal landscapes and bizarre sounds - a 
cool, industrial environment which leaves little space for individualism.

People, animals, crops and machines play a supporting role in the 
logistics of this system which provides our society's standard of 
living. Our Daily Bread is a wide-screen tableau of a feast which isn't 
always easy to digest - and in which we all take part.

A pure, meticulous and high-end film experience that enables the 
audience to form their own ideas.

“../.an unblinking, often disturbing look at industrial food production 
...[its] formal elegance, moral underpinning and intellectually 
stimulating point of view also make it essential. Part of the film’s 
brilliance is how it lays out the images and their wells of meaning with 
such cool deliberation, showing rather than telling/" ~Manohla Dargis, 
for the NYT

"/It was not unlike visiting an eye doctor, peering into the holes into 
which different lenses are slid. “Is this clearer? How about now?” After 
a disorienting moment, one adjusts. Oh. This is how things look. How it 
is to see./" ~ Sarah Malone

Why should YOU care? It's YOUR money that pays for US/Israeli wars - on 
Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Palestine, Libya. Syria, Iran, So America, etc 
etc - for billionaire bailouts, for ever more ubiquitous US prisons, for 
the loss of liberty and civil rights...
