Sacred Cow: The Case for Better Meat
Director: Diana Rogers
2021, USA, English, 80 mins
Speakers: Alan Lewis, Diana Rogers, Nicolette Hahn Niman, Judith D. Schwartz
At our grocery stores and dinner tables, even the most thoughtful consumers are overwhelmed by the number of considerations involved when choosing what to eat—especially when it comes to meat.
Guided by the noble principle of least harm, many responsible citizens resolve the ethical, environmental, and nutritional conundrums by quitting meat entirely. But can a healthy, sustainable, and conscientious food system exist without animals?
Sacred Cow probes the fundamental moral, environmental, and nutritional quandaries we face in raising and eating animals. Focusing our lens on the largest and perhaps most maligned of farmed animals, the cow, Sacred Cow illustrates how eliminating animals from our food system could cause more harm than good to our environment and our bodies. Watch Festival film Meat the Future for a contrasting view on lab-grown meat.
