NOTES FROM THE FILMMAKERS
Nearly all of the meat, eggs, and dairy we eat comes from the industrial system known as “factory farming.” This system destroys our environment and harms public health, and never before has humankind caused more suffering.
Based on the bestselling book by Jonathan Safran Foer, narrated by producer Natalie Portman, and directed and produced by Christopher Quinn, Eating Animals spotlights the heroic farmers, whistleblowers, and innovators who are standing up, against all odds, to fight this system and provide a new way forward.

“The documentary Eating Animals might make you think twice about grilling up some juicy burgers for a barbecue this summer or picking up an order of chicken nuggets at the drive-thru as a quick snack for your kids. Or it might not. Several movies have come along in recent years aiming to enlighten consumers about the horrors of corporate food production and the benefits of plant-based eating. Some, like 2009’s Food Inc., are more successful than others, like 2011’s Forks Over Knives, at persuasively making their points. The passionate intention is clearly there in all these endeavors, but habits are hard to change; sadly, the people who are most likely to seek out a movie like Eating Animals are already on board with its message. Still, director Christopher Quinn’s film is as eye-opening as it is stomach-turning, whether you’re familiar with this topic or not. Working from the best-selling book of the same name by Jonathan Safran Foer, Quinn explores the evils of factory farming, both in the way it exploits the labor of hardworking families and in the sickening mistreatment of animals it entails.” – Christy Lemire.
