Meat and Milk
Meat and Milk, a film by Bernard Bloch
From time immemorial there exist countless tales of the sacred and symbolic relationship we share with cows, rearing and breeding practices that constantly question human behaviour. The food-processing industry is cutting us off from nature, and the urgent question is how we re-establish our relationship with the community of living creatures.
Sixteen scenes of milk and meat from around the world tell remarkable stories of intertwined destinies of cow and humans and invite us to ponder the fate of cattle as a means of studying the destiny of mankind.
