OUR DAILY BREAD
Shown as part of the Food & Agriculture Film Series
OUR DAILY BREAD (UNSER TÄGLICH BROT) (Austria, 2005, 92 min.)
Welcome to the world of industrial food production and high-tech farming! To the rhythm of conveyor belts and immense machines, the film looks without commenting into the places where food is produced in Europe: monumental spaces, surreal landscapes and bizarre sounds—a cool, industrial environment that leaves little space for individualism. People, animals, crops and machines play a supporting role in the logistics of this system that provides our society’s standard of living. Our Daily Bread is a wide-screen tableau of a feast that isn’t always easy to digest – and in which we all take part. A pure, meticulous and high-end film experience that enables the audience to form their own ideas. Directed by Nikolaus Geyrhalter. Produced by Nikolaus Geyrhalter, Markus Glaser, Michael Kitzberger and Wolfgang Widerhofer.
Introduced by Andrea Schrammel, Counselor, Austrian Cultural Forum.
