We Are Animals

Activists have been fighting for animal rights for decades. Can they get justice for farm animals in meat production or is the food industry unstoppable?

The film depicts the structural nature and systematic use of power in animal production through three central characters. They have been in a David-and-Goliath battle against the multi billion euro industry. The shocking material, shot by the animal rights activists, have caused several international scandals, but have they changed anything?
