Thursday, September 22nd at 6:30PM
The New Canaan Playhouse
89 Elm Street, New Canaan, CT
At the Fork is a new documentary by filmmaker and omnivore John Papola who, together with his vegetarian wife Lisa, offer up a timely and refreshingly unbiased look at how farm animals are raised for our consumption. Papola asks the tough questions behind every hamburger, glass of milk, and baby back rib. What he discovers are not heartless industrialists, but America’s farmers – real people who, along with him, are grappling with the moral dimensions of farming animals for food.
