“Eating Animals opened my eyes and took my breath away. It presents an urgent and mandatory lesson.” -- Alice Waters

Eating Animals, a new documentary inspired by Jonathan Safran Foer's bestselling book, begins with a single question: where do our eggs, dairy, and meat really come from? To answer this, director Christopher Quinn travels around the globe - from China to Sweden - in order to fully understand what impact an industry that processes more than 50 billion animals a year has on the environment, the economy, and our health. 

Produced and narrated by Academy Award winner Natalie Portman, Eating Animals spotlights individuals from a growing movement of local farmers devoted to bringing their trade - and the way we eat - back to its roots. 

On Sunday, June 17th join New America NYC at the IFC Center for an exclusive screening of Eating Animals followed by a conversation with some of New York's champions for a new narrative around ethical farming, animal rights, and clean, savory eating. 

Following the conversation, please join us for a reception at OTTO Enoteca e Pizzeria, at One Fifth Avenue.
