Unser Täglich Brot

Our daily Bread

Nikolaus Geyrhalter
Welcome to the world of industrial food production and high-tech farming! To the rhythm of conveyor belts and immense machines, the film presents epic images showing the places where European food's produced: monumental spaces, surreal landscapes, bizarre sounds. People, animals and crops play a supporting role in this system providing our society's standard of living. A wide screen tableau of a feast which isn't always easy to digest - and in which we all take part.
