How our food gets to the tableMar 11 2013

This is a clip from Samsara, a 2011 film directed by Ron Fricke, who was the director of photography for Koyaanisqatsi. The chicken picker machine hoovering up chickens and depositing them into drawers is one of the most dystopian things I've ever seen.

The whole film doesn't look this depressing, but this short clip really gives full visual meaning to the mass production of food. (via @colossal)
