Geyrhalter, Nikolaus. Our Daily Bread. Vienna: Autlook Filmsales, 2005. HD, 92 min. https://youtu.be/zG7q1NQJz7E.

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 logistics of this system which provides our society’s standard of living. (Source: Nikolaus Geyrhalter Filmproduktion GmbH)
