Our Daily Bread Nikolaus Geyrhalter

Film index A to Z

Unser täglich Brot

Thousands of chicks moving down an assembly line, an olive tree stripped of its fruit in fifteen seconds flat, pigs dissected by gleaming robots... Our Daily Bread is a merciless portrait of a food industry that has become completely dehumanized in the name of mass production. Going with the flow of the hypnotic machine rhythms, and the enormous scale and implacable symmetry of the factories, the film tells a story of efficiency gone terribly wrong, with neither dialogue nor commentary.

Presented in collaboration with Canal D and the Cinéma sous les étoiles de Funambules Médias
