Meat the Future
Directed by Liz Marshall
MEAT THE FUTURE ushers the viewer into a world vexed by the impacts of modern-day industrial animal agriculture, and zeros in on a solution-focused story. Revealing challenges and breakthroughs and posing a myriad of questions about the future, this feature length character-driven documentary chronicles the game-changing birth of a new food movement referred to as “cell-based” “clean” and “cultured” meat – a term hotly debated as the industry approaches commercialization in America. Following its pioneers and leaders with exclusive access over the course of three years, this urgent and timely film explores the advent of producing real meat without the need to raise and slaughter animals.
Featuring Uma Valeti, Co-Founder and CEO of Memphis Meats and the Memphis Meats team.
With Bruce Friedrich, Co-Founder and Executive Director of The Good Food Institute.
