AMERICAN MEAT TRAILER from Leave It Better on Vimeo.

“The new documentary AMERICAN MEAT chronicles America’s grassroots revolution in sustainable meat production. The film, an official selection of Food Day 2011, explains our current industrial meat system, and shows the feedlots and confinement operations, not through hidden cameras but through the eyes of the farmers who live and work there — men like Johnny Glosson and Sam Talley who operate poultry confinement farms in Chatham County, N.C. The film then shifts to the burgeoning sustainable, local-food movement made up farmers, food advocates, chefs and everyday folks who could change everything about the way meat reaches the American table. The film stars Joel Salatin, the legendary Virginia farmer who leads a movement of meat producers who raise their animals outdoors and without antibiotics.”

You can buy a ticket for just the film screening and panel or for the film, panel and feast.

Tickets are: $10 for the film, or $25 for film and feast.
