FOOD & FARM FILM FEST: AMERICAN MEAT
April 04 only
Friday, April 4 at 9pm
AMERICAN MEAT is a pro-farmer look at chicken, hog and cattle production in America. Beginning with a history of our current industrial system, the feedlots and confinement operations are unveiled, not through hidden cameras, but through the eyes of the farmers who live and work there. From there, the story shifts to Polyface Farms, where the Salatin family has developed an alternative agricultural model based on rotational grazing and local distribution. The film explores the frontiers of sustainable meat production in America through the eyes of farmers. Directed by Graham Meriwether. 2013.
Shown with: I Kill (David White, 10m)
Served with: A treat from Fork in the Road Foods
