Our daily Bread
Official film description...
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 in the places where food is produced: 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.
OUR DAILY BREAD is a wide-screen tableau of a feast which isn't always easy to digest and in which we all take part. A pure, meticulous and high-end film experience that enables the audience to form their own ideas.

An impressive piece of dramaturgy of image and sound. (…) The risky decision of leaving only the images to the viewers has paid off. – Austrian Film News
Sometimes it almost looks like Science Fiction: OUR DAILY BREAD by Nikolaus Geyrhalter delivers an overwhelming image of the nutrition production industry. – Die PresseAwards: 4 wins & 4 nominations.
