Unlike previous docs like Food Inc, Fast Food Nation or Super Size Me, American Meat takes an much more even-handed look at animal husbandry.
The filmmakers explain how America arrived at our current industrial system, and show you the feedlots and confinement houses, not through hidden cameras but through the eyes of the farmers who live and work there. From there, they introduce the current revolution developing in animal husbandry.
We meet tens of farmers across the country who have changed their life to start grass-based farms, and we highlight every day tangible solutions that people can take, to change agriculture in America.
Take a look at the trailer.
If you’re interested in seeing American Meat, you may have to wait for the dvd release. This movie will not be showing up at your nearest Mega Movie-Plex. Here is a link to their screening locations.
I have suggested to the filmmakers that they stream this movie online to reach a larger audience before releasing the dvd.
Maybe they’ll do it, maybe they won’t.
