Emotional detachment and consumerism
2 January 2013 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This film is about our globalised world. It's about how little we know about the process that the products we buy go through. We don't know, and thus don't understand the consequences of our choices. Maybe we don't want to know?

We become emotionally detached because we don't know how the animals we eat are treated, or the consequences our food has both on our environment and on the people who produce it. Would we make the same choices if we knew?

This film shows the people who produce the food and their dreams. A can of ravioli can tell us many things about our society - and this film did.
