“An extraordinarily intelligent and moving documentary on the human-meat relationship”— Hal Herzog, author of Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat: Why It’s So Hard to Think Straight About Animals
“A thoughtful, ambitious, and emotionally affecting feature documentary about protagonist Audrey Kali’s journey to understand the ethics of animal slaughter.”— Jacob Bricca, ACE, author of Documentary Editing: Principles & Practice
Farm and Red Moon follows Audrey Kali as she visits farms and slaughterhouses and meets with experts to reveal the ambiguous moral underbelly of humane animal slaughter. But what starts out as a concern for animals becomes a story about people. What she once saw as senseless acts of violence, she understands as a complicated agricultural system, pursued by decent people fully cognizant of the contradictions and complexity of their actions.
