The Milk System
INDEPENDENT FILMS • Documentary, Independent
There’s one thing milk stands for — health. It’s seen as natural and nutrient-rich. Which is exactly what makes it so attractive for the market. But is it really that healthy? We set out to take a critical look at the milk system. Along the way, we’ll meet farmers, dairy owners, politicians, lobbyists, NGOs, scientists. Each has their own views on the value and consequences of an industry with worldwide impact. Whether in Europe, Asia, or Africa, milk is the allegorical model of streamlined-for-growth global food production and its consequences. The film uncovers surprising truths behind the system. Who profits at whose cost? Does the system have a future and are there alternatives? A journey across continents (Europe, Africa, and China) that deals with preconceptions and brings solutions to light.
