Powerful documentary 'Our Daily Bread' reveals ethical and systemic failings of 'modern food systems'

In Avignon last night I went to see the documentary feature length film 'Our Daily Bread'. It is a powerful, absorbing account of the interplay between the ' mechanisation' of life as well as the over-mechanisation of contemporary European food production. Directed by Nikolaus Geyrhalter, it has received critical appraisal wherever released. It is recommended viewing, especially for those who research, design, engineer or fund modern food production methods, not to mention those who consume!
