WIR UND DAS TIER – EIN SCHLACHTHAUSMELODRAM

Germany 2023 – Director: David Spaeth – Original language: English, German, Italian – Subtitles: English

Many people have become completely disconnected with the process of killing in which meat production originates. What does it mean for the people whose job it is to slaughter? And what impact does it have on us to face up to it? There are no ready-made answers. That is what we learn from this intelligent film that observes processes, listens and makes the meat-eating viewers step out of their comfort zone. Ysabel Fantou
