Eating Animals is the feature-length documentary adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer's critically acclaimed book of the same name. The film reveals through intimate narratives what has happened to our country in the past 40 years as we have moved away from traditional farming communities to massive industrial farming complexes that produce a seemingly endless supply of so-called "cheap" meat, eggs, and dairy. What starts out as a simple question - where does our meat come from? - quickly takes us down the rabbit hole of today's industrial animal agriculture and becomes an exploration of the ultimate stakes of eating animals, the destruction of farming, and the complete unwinding of the American mythos.

There's inherent cruelty in that system. I look back on it now and I say, 'How could I not see that?' Maybe it's like if you don't wear glasses and you can't see real well and you put your glasses on and then, 'Wow, there's a whole new world out there.' Maybe it was sort of like that.

This truly is eye opening. We need more films and people trying to tell the truth about where their meat is coming from. I appreciate everyone who put this film together but factory farming needs to stop and it's making us all sick. This is educating the public and I thank you. Please think about these beautiful sentient souls that deserve a healthy. happy life.
