Flash forward and the film shows shoppers scavenging for food in a big box store. Again, like robots, the shoppers grab packages of meat and fruit or boxes of processed food. There’s no connection to the earth, just industry.
Finally, the food that goes in our mouth. The filmmaker took on a scene at a fast food restaurant. The feel was the same as the rendering plants. No consideration to what was taking place, just programmed beings designed to repeat the same motion over and over. Food to mouth, food to mouth, no thought or consideration to how the food got there or even what it is, just repetitive motions.
It’s an entrancing clip. It’s a little disturbing, but hopefully motivating. I left it saying, “I want to know where my food comes from.” “I want to grow more of my own food.” “I want to go to farmer’s markets, or the farm itself.” “I want to cook more.”
More than anything, I want to ask more questions and avoid becoming a member of the drone society. I want my food to be raised, not pieced together in an assembly line.
