Synopsis

Ever seen a machine that shakes all the olives from a tree in 15 seconds? The film takes the viewer to places in Europe where food is produced. Different production processes of various food items are addressed, from olives to steak and from tomatoes to salt. People, animals and crops only seem to play a supporting role in the logistics of food production. The film evokes questions about the consequences for man, animal and environment, and the desirability of modern production methods. Without comment or explanation, surreal scenes are dished up and the distance between consumer and product becomes almost tangible.
