“Food Inc. is a Disney movie compared to Earthlings” – Ellen Degeneres.
Words cannot describe this movie. Everything you’ve ever thought about food… all the pretty pictures you’re being presented with… all the lies you’re being told by those who profit from keeping you in the dark… If you want to know the truth, you need to see this movie.
Andrea Kladar is the founder of the 100 FOR 100 Movement who led by example and ran 100 km to save 100 animals in 2013 placing first for women under 40 in the Canadian National Trail Championships and raising over $14,000 for charity. Andrea is not a professional athlete. She is a war refugee. She is a daughter, spouse and friend. She is a godmother and philanthropist. She is vegan and a finance professional who lives in Calgary, Canada. If Andrea can take on this challenge, so can you!

This is exactly what goes on in the Industry…anyone that watches this film, if they have a heart will no longer be OK eating meat…
It’s absolutely horrendous what goes on in the industry! And the only reason it is not illegal is because people don’t know about it. People need to learn what happens!
People don’t know, they don’t want to know, they don’t care to know, and they certainly lack any interest in learning about the mayhem and murder we perform every minute to these animals of a lesser god. And learning how brutal and vicious humans are to other living things isn’t going to move anyone — especially because even I had to turn away from the animals being skinned alive, and unmercifully left alive for a bloodied glare at us, uncomprehending our indifference — even pleasure — in witnessing their suffering. As my comment elsewhere says. “Earthlings” is missing its mark and needs to be re-cut and re-tracked. its pace, among other things, is entirely too slow. How do you expect to capture anyone’s attention before they pass out from the gore? You need to slam us up against a rough-hewn wall and tape our eyes open while the movie runs, very much in the manner of “A Clockwork Orange”. Movies CAN do that without such force, but “Earthlings” falls short. And where is your wider network, and alliance, and master plan to enlist the populace in revolt? People have to give up their chemical addictions to the stuff we pump into everything we eat. The earth and its inhabitants require a revolution.
Well said Ed: “the earth and its inhabitants require a revolution”. Indeed! We are running head first into a brick wall with our health, the environment, the starving humans around the world as well as the brutality to non-humans. We desperately need a major revolution to change the world for the better!
After watching this I’m amazed at anyone that would continue to eat other living beings, simply for taste, nothing more!!!
I agree Sandie. It’s very sad. The advertising of the meat and dairy industries is very powerful and people fall victim to it.
Luckily, more people are waking up to the truth every day and going vegan. Numbers of vegans has grown exponentially in the past few years!
The message of the movie “earthlings” is paramount and urgent, yet the film desperately needs to be re-cut with new audio. The intro is nearly ten minutes long, while the ending is a mess, especially its focus on wild animals after showing for the most part the terrible torture we perform on domesticated animals. The story line omits economic factors altogether, and the narrator is not up to the task, his “important” tone more a drone. Finally, where is the “action” step? If the movie is only to get us through the “attention” phase, OK, but I think you waste your time if you cannot rally people we might presume would be — after seeing the movie — ready to do something.
I fully agree Ed. The movie could use an overhaul as well as a clear call to action. That’s why I’m excited to see the entire trilogy which Earthlings is a part of. The next movie in the trilogy is called Unity. I am very much looking forward to it!
