Nearly all of the meat, eggs, and dairy we eat comes from the industrial system known as “factory farming.” This system destroys our environment and harms public health, and never before has humankind caused more suffering. Based on the bestselling book by Jonathan Safran Foer, narrated by producer Natalie Portman, and directed and produced by Christopher Quinn (God Grew Tired of Us), Eating Animals spotlights the heroic farmers, whistleblowers, and innovators who are standing up, against all odds, to fight this system and provide a new way forward.
Join us for a screening of Eating Animals followed by a panel discussion by advocates and whistleblowers featured in the movie. The panel will be moderated by the film’s producer, Hana Wuerker. There is no cost for this screening and reservations are not required.
