MEATWORK

(2012)

Projector Films

Can you eat meat and really care about the animals on your dinner plate? Documentarian and meat-eater Madeleine Parry wants to find out. So she enlists to become an abattoir meat-worker, and works her way up the production line toward the “killbox”. With unparalleled access to a slaughterhouse, she explores the experiences of the animals we eat and the men who kill them. As she truly becomes part of the industrial meat production process, she faces the reality of killing hundreds of animals a day. Maddie wants to know the truth, but can she stomach it?
