NOTES FROM THE FILMMAKERS
Milked is a topical feature documentary that exposes the whitewash of New Zealand’s multi-billion-dollar dairy industry.
Young activist Chris Huriwai travels around the country searching for the truth about how this source of national pride has become the nation’s biggest threat. It’s rapidly gone from a land with no cows to being the biggest exporter of dairy in the world, but the industry seems to be failing in every way possible.
Featuring interviews with high-profile contributors such as Dr. Jane Goodall, environmentalist and former actress Suzy Amis Cameron, and Cowspiracy co-director, Keegan Kuhn, Milked reveals the behind-the-scenes reality of the kiwi dairy farming fairy-tale. It uncovers alarming information about the impacts of the industry on the environment and health, leading up to the discovery that we’re on the edge of the biggest global disruption of food and agriculture in history.
An impactful global story told with a local eye; the film also points to what New Zealand and other countries can do to change their fate.

“. . . Milked offers a magnified look at New Zealand’s dairy industry and the damage it’s inflicting on the country and world as a whole. Why are we still drinking cow’s milk? This is the question that Milked, a new documentary available on Waterbear, wants you to ask. Fair warning, be prepared for every conceivable pro-dairy argument to be debunked during the doc’s 90-minute run time.”
