Just take a look at the video below and trust me, you will be shocked! There are many different books, documentaries and even undercover videos, which have exposed the flaws in the system, often inciting outrage and, in some cases, spurring laws to protect the food industry from the public’s prying eye. This video is a small part of the documentary called “Samsara”! You should also know that this documentary explores the modern food process through an artistic approach.
And without saying a word, this seven-minute clip takes the viewer on a journey through poultry, cattle and pork facilities, a grocery store, a fast food restaurant and ends with a doctor’s visit. There are no shots of pigs being beaten, or activists rallying for better animal welfare. And, to be honest with you, despite the stunning clip, “Samsara” is not just about the food industry. Well, you should know that the filmmakers claim that they don’t have any agenda whatsoever.
The famous producer, Mark Magidson, told the New York Times:
“Our film is more about feelings and an inner journey than an intellectual experience. We’re not trying to say anything.”
Note: the film’s website explains that samsara means “the ever turning wheel of life” in Sanskrit, and is meant to showcase “the point of departure for the filmmakers as they search for the elusive current of interconnection that runs through our lives.” This documentary was filmed in 25 different countries over a period of five years in an attempt to express “how our life cycle mirrors the rhythm of the planet.” We really hope you find this article helpful and don’t forget to share it with your friends and family.
