DVD - Our Daily Bread
Our Daily Bread
Our Daily Bread is a filmmaker's documentary.
Nikolaus Geyrhalter has created a highly stylized look into industrial food production and shows us just how things work on a day-to-day basis with barely a single word being captured.
We see how evolved the production of food has become to allow truly impressive yields on a mass scale. Uniformity, regularity, efficiency, and consistency are the name of the game.
This is a truly behind the scenes look at European food production.
This access and footage would never have been able to be captured here in the US. Every shot is truly cinematically stimulating. The colours, lines, and perspective are all diligently captured and unbiased – yet it makes me yearn for my local farmers market.
From the killing floor to the greenhouse to the farm and even to the mine – we see it all. Just because we can operate on a mass scale, does it mean we should?
Can the world’s population be feed by any other means?
Thankfully I already stocked up for the week this morning at the Thompkins Square Market and just polished off a healthy local brunch.
