Our Daily Bread (2005) by Nikolaus Geyrhalter, 92 min, video, Austria

“Welcome to the world of industrial food production and high-tech farming! To the rhythm of conveyor belts and immense machines, the film looks without commenting into the places where food is produced in Europe: monumental spaces, surreal landscapes and bizarre sounds—a cool, industrial environment which leaves little space for individualism. People, animals, crops and machines play a supporting role in the logistics of this system which provides our society’s standard of living.” – Nikolaus Geyrhalter Filmproduktion
