The End of Meat is a groundbreaking documentary film envisioning a future where meat consumption belongs to the past.
Although evidence of meat consumption’s negative impact on the planet and on human health continues to stack up, animal welfare is on the decline and humanity’s love affair with hamburgers, steaks, nuggets and chops seems never ending.
Over the last decade, perceptions of meat eating have greatly evolved. Health concerns and meat scandals have to a public debate about the ethical implications of meat consumption and the rise of plant-based diets. Meat producers have launched their own vegan products; 100% vegan supermarkets have opened; and almost every food manufacturer is adding and labellaing vegan options. Is this the beginning of the end of meat? Are we approaching a turning point in the human-animal relationship?
In The End of Meat, filmmaker Marc Pierschel embarks on a journey to discover what effect a post-meat world would have on the environment, the animals and ourselves. He meets Esther the Wonder Pig, who became an internet phenomenon; talks to pioneers leading the vegan movement in Germany; visits the first fully vegetarian city in India; witnesses rescued farm animals enjoying their newfound freedom; observes the future food innovators making meat and cheese without the animals, even harvesting “bacon” from the ocean, and much more.
The End of Meat reveals the hidden impact of meat consumption; explores the opportunities and benefits of a shift to a more compassionate diet; and raises critical questions about the future role of animals in our society.
