Hope for All: Unsere Nahrung - unsere Hoffnung (2016)

Half of the population in Western society suffers from being overweight. Cardio-vascular diseases, diabetes and cancer are epidemic. Our meat consumption has quintupled over the past 50 years. 65 billion land animals are being slaughtered every year for food consumption. One third of the global grain production is fed to animals for fattening while 1.8 billion people world wide suffer from hunger and starvation. Can there really be a solution to all these problems?

It was the search for an answer to this question that led Austrian author and filmmaker Nina Messinger on a journey through Europe, India and the US to investigate the consequences of our diet and to meet with leading experts in nutrition, medicine, and agriculture, among others, as well as with farmers and people who have recovered from severe illnesses by simply changing their diet. The film´s deeply distressing images and moving stories make a clear case for a plant-based diet that is not so just a short-lived life-style trend but rather for preserving our entire world. The movie serves up a stunningly simply, yet comprehensive solution – right in front of our plates. Changing our eating habits will rebalance not just our health but the planet itself.

To tylko zwierzeta (2012)

An independent documentary showing different faces of the relation between humans and other species. Who are the animals and what place do they occupy in modern society? Why are they killed in uncounted amounts? Why are they imprisoned and sentenced to unnecessary pain although they want to live, they want to be free and they want to avoid suffering as much as we do? How does the objectification of animals reflect on inter-human relations? If the answer is THEY'RE ONLY ANIMALS, then what does it mean to be human?

Facing Animals (2012)

Why do we look away from millions of animals in industrial farms while pampering and humanizing others? In the film Facing Animals pigs, chickens, cows and dogs are the protagonists, humans are the antagonist. We see the world from the perspective of the animals: chicks are thrown onto a conveyor belt, a lady is cuddling a cow in a meadow, piglets are screaming while their tails are cut off, dogs are blessed in a church. The stunning, often confronting, visuals take the viewer on a roller coaster of emotions. It becomes clear how complex and often bizarre the relationship between man and animal is.

The End Of Meat - Eine Welt ohne Fleisch (2017)

Although evidence of meat consumption's negative impact on the planet and on human health continue stacking up as animal welfare is on the decline, humanity's love affair with hamburgers, steaks, nuggets and chops just doesn’t end. In Germany, home of bratwurst and schnitzel, meat is an integral part of the diet. That is, until a few years ago, when perceptions somewhat evolved. Health concerns and meat scandals led to a public debate about the ethical implications of meat consumption and the rise of plant-based diets. Meat producers launched their own vegan products; 100% vegan supermarkets opened; and almost every food manufacturer was adding and labeling vegan options. Is this the beginning of the end of meat? Are we approaching a turning point in the human-animal relationship?
