Our Daily Bread, industrial food




View Christophe » 25/02/11, 16:42

Broadcast almost 2 years ago on Arte: http://www.arte.tv/fr/semaine/244,broad ... =2009.html , there was not yet a subject dedicated to this very good Austrian documentary released in France in 2007 directed by Nikolaus Geyrhalter.

So that's it.

Our daily bread

Image

Freezing and speechless pictures of the European food industry: relentless cinematic meditation.

Welcome to the empire of industrial food and high-tech agriculture. By walking his camera for two years across Europe in the farms, greenhouses, fields, slaughterhouses and factories that supply most of our tables, the Austrian director Nikolaus Geyrhalter delivers the fascinating and terrible picture of nature enslaved, abused, denied by technique. Gigantic hangars where hens, chicks or piglets pile up as far as the eye can see, chemical baths where millions of apples and tomatoes float, thousands of hectares of sunflower or wheat in extensive cultivation, square kilometers of greenhouses that disfigure Almeria; omnipotence of the machines to spray, tear off, disembowel, disinfect, around which are busy auxiliaries, men or women, in futuristic suits, concentrated on tasks repeated endlessly.

Inhumanity

Through his meticulously composed framing and soundtrack, his fluid editing, the absence of comments and interviews, the filmmaker makes the images speak with the force of a nightmare, contemplating the radical inhumanity of a world that we do not not usually seen - and which we would prefer not to think about. Because we tacitly accept the rules, productivity, low prices and mass consumption. Nikolaus Geyrhalter invites us not only to meditate on what we eat, but on what we have become.

Prices are increasing on the shelves but as a recent study shows, producers do not benefit.

As they do not earn a living, they stop en masse (100 fewer in 000 years, 10 fewer every week).

Today French producers are disappearing for lack of sufficient income and thousands of them are retiring without finding young people to take over.

This is why they are currently demonstrating all over France just to survive and continue to produce enough to feed us (the upside-down signs at the entrance to towns and villages are why).

as this was bound to happen!
As they do not earn a living, they stop en masse (100 fewer in 000 years, 10 fewer every week).
this began with industrialization in general and in agriculture as well.
Today French producers are disappearing for lack of sufficient income and thousands of them are retiring without finding young people to take over.
Logically, they were lured by promises that were never kept (except for the very big ones who profited handsomely)
This is why they are currently demonstrating all over France just to survive and continue to produce enough to feed us (the upside-down signs at the entrance to towns and villages are why).
which will be of no use, as usual! The AI ​​that we are being told is there so that farmers, who have become useless, are replaced by HT machines. Why feed mouths that have become useless? Everyone made fun of whistleblowers from the beginning of the 20th century with the wonderful promises of an ideal future. Well, it’s happened and we’re not at the end of it!
