A sincere and probing exploration of how the food industry treats non-human animals and how we all treat/consider members of other species.
29 November 2013 | by susanloucksSee all my reviews

This movie has an authenticity that makes it very powerful. The narrator seems sincere and we follow his curiosity to places we would not ordinarily see and then to issues we would not ordinarily consider. We travel with him to factory farms and then to question philosophers, academics, and ordinary people about many aspects of THE social justice issue of our time. There are dark moments and funny moments on a journey to learn for ourselves about factory farms and how we as a society treat non-human animals. Specisism is a well-crafted, thoughtful and inspirational documentary. If you eat, you should see it.
