“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, a university professor and prior vegan, as she confronts her investigation of farm animal slaughter practices. Americans know little about animal slaughter or the debates waging about how to do it humanely. Often overlooked, or overtly kept from view, slaughter is the final step in meat production, whether part of the local food movement or industrial agriculture. We follow Kali as she visits farms and slaughterhouses to reveal the ambiguous moral underbelly of humane animal slaughter.
