Feature-length documentary Meat went beyond the supermarket deep freeze, to look at the stories behind the meat that ends up on people's plates. The film is built around three farmers and a hunter: industrial pig farmer Ian, who argues profit is not his main motivation, straight-talking 'one-woman farming operation' Jill, chicken farmer Tony (who discusses killing 1000 chickens a week), and deer hunter Josh, who thinks that many lack awareness of how food gets to their plate. The documentary was directed by David White; it grew from his earlier, much travelled short films I Kill and Oink.
We are predators: we’ve got two eyes in our head that face forward. We’re designed to harvest meat.– Deer hunter Josh
