Critic Reviews

Casa de Carne jolts its viewers into remembering and looking beyond the steak on our plates and the packages that snatch any semblance of life that existed before it ended up on our plates. The film aims to guide its viewers into seeing the products as more than just food and, as Brown says, “expand [their] circle of empathy”. Our meats and the animal products we enjoy, like Eric’s meal, have consequences. We often forget this. Modernisation and the industries that have come with it have successfully widened the gap between the animals that lived and the food we eat. As a result, we have forgotten what happens to the animals before they make their way onto our plates, on our backs, or in our make-up. Casa de Carne serves as a reminder of the reality we’ve forgotten, or ignored. It closes the gap and shows us the full circle. Most of us would not be able to slaughter or watch an animal be slaughtered for the meat we enjoy, so why consume meat? It’s a strong argument.” – Sunayana Samantaray. The Vegan Review. Short film leaves you wanting a kinder world. 2 November 2020
