What Are We Eating? Full Trailer for 'At the Fork' Food Documentary
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.

We can't keep it up, or we'll be doomed. Still haven't became a veggie yet though.

Meat is just too good. And it is good for you! I just try and maintain like a 60/40 (v to m) split and I sleep soundly.

Could this really be a fair documentary for a change? Facts only and let the viewer decide without the slanted editorial approach? Could be very refreshing. Now, off to cook some bacon....

Bacon is now classified as a level one carcinogen per the World Health Organization October 2015 ... just sayin.

Why do people always brag about eating bacon?

I love watching food documentaries so I'm really looking forward to this. Hopefully they show the good and ugly side of the industry since both exist.

Looks like it could be a good examination of a very human quandary...I'm not anything close to a vegan or vegetarian, but just how do we reconcile our affinity and stewardship toward animals with our consumption of animal based foods? I'm in.

Approach like this should've happened sooner or later. I would love to watch this just to see some other side of the story of meat producing industry and not only the vegetarian one ...

As long as animals are treated like consumable commodities they will continue to needlessly suffer and die. All of the nutrients we need to thrive can be obtained more healthfully, humanely, and environmentally responsibly from plant sources. Being vegan is easier, better and more compelling than ever. Respect animals: Don't eat them.
