Meat the Future

Meat the Future

Directed by Liz Marshall

A close-up and personal look at the visionaries risking everything to innovate real meat without slaughtering animals, and without environmental destruction. With animal agriculture occupying roughly 45% of the world’s ice-free surface area, producing more greenhouse gases than cars, the prospect of meat consumption doubling by 2050 is a wake-up call for solutions. The planet’s future may lie with “clean meat,” also known as “cell-based meat,” and “cultivated meat,” a food science that grows real meat from animal cells.
