Farm and Red Moon Documentary Film Screening with Temple Grandin
Produced and Directed by Audrey Kali and David Tamés
Featuring Temple Grandin
We follow Audrey Kali as she visits farms and slaughterhouses and meets with experts to reveal the ambiguous moral underbelly of humane animal slaughter. But what starts out as a concern for animals becomes a story about people. What she once saw as senseless acts of violence, she understands as a complicated agricultural system, pursued by decent people fully cognizant of the contradictions and complexity of their actions.
Dr. Grandin is a world-renowned author and prominent spokesperson for the humane treatment of livestock and for the neurodiversity movement. She is currently a professor of animal sciences at Colorado State University. In addition to authoring numerous scientific papers on animal behavior, she has published several books related to the understanding of autism. Time magazine honored her as one the most influential people in 2010 and in 2017 she was named to the National Women’s Hall of Fame.
