Unser taeglich Brot (Our Daily Bread)
Germany/Austria 2005

Opening 18 Jan 2007

Directed by: Nikolaus Geyrhalter
Writing credits: Wolfgang Widerhofer, Nikolaus Geyrhalter

Not a word of dialog, commentary, or interview is spoken as disturbing images of slaughterhouses (graphic enough to turn one vegetarian), food processing plants, pesticides on huge high-tech farms, and the machines, both mechanical and human, that run them unfold. All this is contrasted with occasional scenes of people at lunch. Our Daily Bread is a radical documentary on industrial food production in which the viewer is left to form his or her own judgment.
