The End of Meat

A World without Meat

Have you ever wondered what the world would look like if we stopped eating animals? "The End of Meat" is a groundbreaking documentary film envisioning a future where meat consumption belongs to the past.

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 revolution in Germany; visits the first fully vegetarian city in India; witnesses rescued farm animals enjoying their newly found freedom; observes the future food innovators making meat and dairy 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.

This film says above all, that it is about enlightenment and educating people to get people to stop eating meat. When people get to know the animals personally and experience that animals have feelings, everyone stops eating meat. The filmmaker always remains neutral and really wants to find out whether a future without meat is feasible and what it would look like.
