Description:
Unser t├Ąglich Brot (2005)

Welcome to the world of industrial food production and high-tech farming! To the rhythm of conveyor belts and immense machines, the film looks without commenting into the places where food is produced in Europe: monumental spaces, surreal landscapes and bizarre sounds - a cool, industrial environment which leaves little space for individualism. People, animals, crops and machines play a supporting role in the logistic of this system which provides our society's standard of living. Our Daily Bread is a wide-screen tableau of a feast which isn't always easy to digest - and in which we all take part. A pure, meticulous and high-end film experience that enables the audience to form their own ideas.
The film is introduced by UH professor Ira Rohter with a question and answer discussion to follow.

Ira Rohter, Ph.D., joined the University of Hawaii in 1968 and regularly teaches courses in the Politics of Hawaii, Political Ecology and Development, Environmental Politics, and alternative futures. Rohter authored A Green Hawaii: Sourcebook for Development Alternatives, was a founding member of the Transformational Politics section of the American Political Science Association, and, in 1992, helped found the Hawaii Green Party.
