Film explores high-tech farming and industrial food production
If in your mind the origin of all food is the supermarket, you'd likely find "Our Daily Bread" to be a revelation.
The Austrian documentary by Nikolaus Geyrhalter explores industrial food production and high-tech farming, set against a soundtrack of the sounds of conveyor belts and giant machines. The observations are presented without comment.
It will be shown at 7 p.m. next Wednesday at the University of Hawaii-Manoa's Yukiyoshi Room, Krauss 012 as part of the Sakamaki Extraordinary Lecture Series.
"Our Daily Bread" won the jury award at the 2005 International Documentary Festival in Amsterdam, was named best film at the 2006 ECOCINEMA Film Festival, took the grand prize in the 2006 Paris Festival International of Films on the Environment and was a selection in the 2007 New York Film Festival.
