Le Même


Most people see a documentary about the meat industry and then they become a vegetarian for a week.              -Jason Reitman

Le même was shot in a French farm and in Bavarian forest national park in Germany. This 20-mins-long documentary juxtaposes the life and death of domesticated pigs with wild boars, two closely connected species, both of which caused by human activities.

At the end of the film, young children are having pork ribs as their dinner while watching the beginning of Le Même for entertainment. For many, the life of an animal is no longer a life, but a commodity instead.
