Join us at the Montclair Public Library on Thursday, November 16th at 6:30pm for the next installment of the Green Film Series, AT THE FORK:
“Caring about animals, caring about where your food comes from, [and] caring about how your food is produced is just a part of a larger shift in all of civilization,” notes one farmer in John Papola’s farming documentary AT THE FORK. The film takes an honest approach at the way animals are produced for food, diving into the impact of our choices make when we sit down to eat. In AT THE FORK, filmmaker and omnivore John Papola, together with his vegetarian wife Lisa, offer up a timely and refreshingly unbiased look at how farm animals are raised for our consumption. With unprecedented access to large-scale conventional farms, Papola asks the tough questions behind every hamburger, glass of milk, and baby-back rib. What he discovers are not heartless industrialists, but America’s farmers — real people who, along with him, are grappling with the moral dimensions of farming animals for mass food consumption.
