Film Description

Controversial and polemic, this chilling documentary caused shockwaves when shown on Channel 4 in 1981, and had enormous impact on many people who saw, for the first time, the ways in which animals are exploited and killed for food, fur, sport and science. Narrated by Julie Christie, scored by Robert Wyatt and David Byrne. Features the 1981 original film version and the director's 2007 cut.
