Need for Meat

Need for Meat

Are we addicted to meat? Director Marijn Frank explores the dilemma between her love for meat and the rational arguments against meat products.

Like many others, director Marijn Frank feels a dilemma between her lust for meat and her aspiration to be a better and wiser human being. She visits a therapist, a butcher, vegetarians, an addiction expert and a chef with a love for meat, among others. Will she manage to shed her addiction or will she accept life as a carnivore?
