FMTV - The Carnivore's Dilemma

The Carnivore's Dilemma

Runtime: 61m 55s | Release date: 2017

In this film, first-time father and prize-winning journalist Benoît Bringer investigates whether we should still eat meat. As the population grows and the pressure to provide cheap food increases, there has been a drive towards relentless productivity and industrialized farming. Animal cruelty, major health issues, and environmental damage are inevitable consequences. We can all see the problem. But are there alternatives?

We go on a journey to the United States, Portugal, France, Sweden, and Germany to reveal the worst excesses of industrial farming and positive alternatives. Animals reared slowly in humane conditions by farmers who take their responsibility to the countryside seriously. We find women and men who use farming methods that work in harmony with nature and animals. This film offers an alternative, sustainable vision for the future of meat consumption.

So sad to see the pigs in those tiny crates and those sickly chickens..heartbreaking. I am glad to see some farmers doing things differently. Well done documentary.

Good documentary. Thank you to the farmers and thank you fmtv for presenting this documentary. I have become a vegetarian for almost a year now since I started watching these fmtv documentaries. One less person eating meat and I feel a lot better. My little contribution.

I thought this was a beautifully made documentary that skipped the dogma and instead presented an objective view of the production of animals for human consumption. I loved that it didn't feel as though it was trying to push an agenda, just present facts and allow the audience to then draw their own conclusion :)
