Eating Our Way To Extinction (12)
Directed by Ludo Brockway and Otto Brockway
NARRATED and executively produced by award winning actor Kate Winslet, this powerful documentary by filmmakers and brothers Ludo and Otto Brockway investigates the effects of animal agriculture on the environment and climate change — taking a deep dive into how our love of meat and dairy is killing the planet, and how a plant-based diet is the solution.
The film reveals that by 2030, through deforestation to cultivate feed for livestock, only 10 per cent of forests will remain if urgent action isn’t taken now, while the world’s fresh water will run out in 30 years.
Apparently eating fish instead isn’t the answer, with aquaculture bringing its own devastating issues. The film shows how fish reared in farms are being pumped with all manner of antibiotics and chemicals, which kill off parasites and can be toxic to us. The filmmakers secretly visit a salmon farm in Scotland, where they are shown the awful reality of aquaculture for themselves. It will put you off eating salmon for life.
Although many of the issues here have featured in other documentaries, the Brockways take a more comprehensive and global look as they tackle the elephant in the room head on: the consequences of animal farming, and how agribusiness lobbyists are thwarting key environmental policy changes from being implemented. Meanwhile, leading scientific experts provide a stark assessment of where we are heading: ecological collapse.
The film will make you question your own choices as it shows the cost of what you are eating — providing much food for thought.
