A Film About Husbandry and Wife. An official trailer has debuted for a documentary called At the Fork, another documentary examining the food we eat and specifically the animals raised en mass for food. Don’t worry, though, this one isn’t about to make you feel ashamed for eating a hamburger or some bacon, it’s a “surprisingly non-judgemental” look at our food and where it all comes from. This is a very beautiful trailer with some fantastic cinematography that sets up the story in this film. The doc features the song “Mercy” performed by the Dave Matthews Band (but it’s not in the trailer). I recommend taking a look at this trailer.
Here’s the official trailer for John Papola’s documentary At the Fork, direct from Vimeo:
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 is directed by John Papola (Love Gov: From First Date to Mandate), written by John Papola, Lisa Versaci and Cristina Colissimo; and executive produced by Dave Matthews. Emergent Order will release the doc in select theaters starting on July 8th this summer. For more info on the film, visit the official website.
