American Meat

American Meat is a feature-length documentary project exploring the American meat industry through the eyes
of one of its chief antagonists, Joel Salatin. Salatin is the leader of an ever-growing community of chefs, farmers and consumers who are opting for animals raised outside and without the use of antibiotics. We hear from those in the conventional meat system who argue that small-scale farming can’t feed America. As the dialogue ensues, Salatin signs a deal with fast-food chain Chipotle in a surprising move with widespread implications for the industry. The film is being positioned for U.S. and international broadcast, and theatrical distribution.
