A friend of mine posted this six minute clip from the film SAMSARA on his Facebook page today, and I was struck by how powerful it was, using no words, only beautifully shot scenes from slaughterhouses. This clip is not gory, exactly, but it is graphic:
It’s kind of like watching the TV show Hannibal – even the most horrifying aspects are filmed in an artful, beautiful way. There is no dialogue. The progression from animal slaughter to human purchases, health and eventual need to inverventional surgery is cleverly done. We have industrialized not just our food, but our health.
