As a matter of fact, outrage toward the meat industry is not new issue. There are books, documentaries and even undercover videos that have exposed flaws within that system. Those materials often are inciting outrage and, in some cases, even spurring laws in order to protect the food industry from the the prying eyes of the public.
“Samsara” is documentary clips that xplores modern food processing through an artistic approach. This seven minute clip has not any dialogues and takes the viewer on one interesting journey through poultry, cattle and pork facilities, a grocery store, a fast food restaurant and ends with a doctor’s visit.
Note: At this clip there are no shots of pigs being beaten or activists that are rallying for better animal welfare.
This amazing clip, “Samsara” is not just about the food industry. Actually, the filmmakers claim that they do not have any agenda at all.
Producer Mark Magidson for the New York Times stated: “Our film is more about feelings and an inner journey than an intellectual experience, “Samsara”.
Namely, the film’s website explains that samsara means “the ever turning wheel of life” in Sanskrit, and their aim is to showcase “the point of departure for the filmmakers as they search for the elusive current of interconnection that runs through our lives.”
This clip was shot in 25 different countries, during period of five years in an attempt to express “how our life cycle mirrors the rhythm of the planet.”
