Before Food, Inc., Fresh The Movie and Food Matters came a film called Unser täglich Brot (Our Daily Bread), a behind the scenes look at industrial food production and high-tech farming.
Alternately beautiful and frightening and shot entirely without dialogue, the film leads us through a lucid dream-like look at the immense systems that produce our food. The crops, the animals, the people and the spaces..
I don’t think I moved an inch in my chair the whole time I was watching it, and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since. Stunning!
