Enjoy your Meal
ENJOY YOUR MEAL. HOW FOOD CHANGES THE WORLD.
Investigative documentary into the origin of food and the moral choices and dilemmas we are forced to confront.
How has our food, from being both a temptation for our taste buds and a source of social gathering, degenerated into a matter of conscience? Under what conditions is it being produced? Fish-breeding ponds are polluting the environment, patches of bush are chopped down for grazing cattle. Beans also have their dark side with water shortages in the region of origin. If we want to behave like conscientious consumers we must tread carefully through a minefield of moral choices and dilemmas.
