Scientists and health officials have raised grave concerns about so-called "factory farms". They have been called "mini Chernobyls" causing vast environmental damage and risk to human health.
The film starts in the U.S. with a brief look at our history and how we got from a country of family farms to one dominated by multinational corporations with gigantic factory farms--literally cities of animals.
The film examines the impact of urbanizing animal populations without a way to handle the vast amounts of sewage generated.
Directed by Don McCorkell. On DVD July 14th.
