Our daily bread might make you sick

There is no way of saying this without sounding insufferably pretentious but here’s hoping that the multi-awardwinning new film from Austrian director Nikolaus Geyrhalter – Unser Taegliche Brot or Our Daily Bread – will get a release in Ireland. It’s a documentary on the mechanisation of food production and, although beautifully shot, it is disturbing stuff if the trailers are anything to go by.

Geyrhalter dispensed with a voiceover – the machinery that produces our food provides most of the soundtrack – and lets his starkly bright, clinical images communicate the nauseating message. (Via Pruned)
