One, Meat Hooked!, is a documentary about meat and the rise and fall and rise again of butchers and butchering in and around NYC. The other, American Meat, chronicles the current state of the entire U.S. meat industry, but with a solutions-oriented perspective. We’ve all heard or seen the horrific conditions in animal feedlots by now, but this film focuses on the farmers who are trying to change that by starting grass-based farms and offers ways we can all support America’s agriculture.
American Meat will have its first theatrical screening at 7 p.m. on Friday, April 12th at New York City’s Cinema Village (22 East 12th Street). Meat Hooked! will screen at BLDG 92 of the Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at 6:30 on Thursday, May 30th. Click the above links for more info.
