WHAT: Whole Foods Market and the Humane Society of the United States are teaming up

“A beautiful, caring, sensitive
and surprisingly non-judgmental
look at how most animals
are produced in the United States.”
—Mark Bittman, bestselling author and former New York Times columnist
WHY: This showing is part of a nationwide crowd-sourced* effort to spark a national
conversation about how animals are raised for food in America.
This documentary provides a transparent look into the complex world of animal agriculture –
including the challenges and opportunities that exist within the current system – and shows
how consumers’ purchasing decisions can directly impact farmers and how they raise their animals.
“A healthy farm feeds the earth,
its animals and people.
It’s all about balance.
‘At the Fork’ raises these issues
with heart and clarity.”
—Dave Matthews, musician and philanthropist
WHEN: July 13, 2016
WHERE: AMC Loews 19th St. East 6
New York , NY 10003
DETAILS: In “At the Fork,” omnivore filmmaker John Papola and his vegetarian wife, Lisa,
go behind the scenes to learn how animals are raised for consumption in the U.S.
With unprecedented access to large-scale conventional farms, Papola asks the tough
questions behind every hamburger, glass of milk and baby back rib.
What he discovers are not heartless industrialists, but America’s farmers — real people who,
along with him, are grappling with the moral dimensions of farming animals for food.
Through conversations with experts on food, farming and animal husbandry, including
world-renowned animal welfare expert Dr. Temple Grandin; Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO
of The Humane Society of the United States; and Mark Bittman, bestselling author and
former New York Times columnist, “At the Fork” spotlights the power consumers
have to help change the way animals are raised.
