At the Fork
A film about husbandry and wife
Filmmaker and omnivore John Papola, together with his vegetarian wife Lisa, offer up a timely and refreshingly unbiased look at how farm animals are raised for our consumption. With unprecedented access to large-scale conventional farms, Papola asks the tough questions behind every hamburger, glass of milk and baby-back rib. What he discovers are not heartless industrialists, but America's farmers - real people who, along with him, are grappling with the moral dimensions of farming animals for food.
"At The Fork" shows conditions in American factory farming, which are similar to those in other countries. In addition,"At the Fork" brings species-appropriate animal husbandry and vegan nutrition into play as solutions.
