Need for Meat: A big success in South-Korea

25 July, 2016

Our documentary Need for Meat has been shown twice at Seoul International Food Film Festival held from May 26 to May 31 in Seoul, the capital of South-Korea.

Director Marijn Frank feels a dilemma between her lust for meat but at the same time acknowledges plenty is wrong in the meat industry. In this film, she attempts to find out whether she can manage to shed her addiction by exploring the arguments of both pro and anti- mear eaters.

We have been informed that it was received very well by the audience of the festival and that it had trigged a valuable discussion afterwards.
