Moby will select and provide music for “The Future of Meat,” a new documentary about the revolutionary new practice of “cultivating” meat. In addition, conservation legend Dr. Jan Jane Goodall has signed on to describe the film, directed by award-winning filmmaker Liz Marshall behind “The Ghosts in Our Machine” and “Water on the Table.”
“For more than five years, our lens has been at the forefront of the historic and optimistic movement to change,” Marshall said in a statement. “It is unclear what the future holds for farmed meat, but I believe its revolutionary journey on earth will stand the test of time.”
“The Flesh of the Future” Dr. Uma follows Valley (pictured above), as she prepares to create a process where real meat is produced sustainably without breeding, growing and killing animals. That process, cultivated meat, is a food invention that produces meat from animal cells, and is part of this revolution as the co-founder and CEO of Vality Upside Foods. The film helped Valty and his team reduce production costs over five years, and in the eyes of consumers the impending birth of an industry that could help reduce greenhouse gases and reduce demand for livestock farmland. Metfilm Sales represents global sales rights outside of Canada.
I am delighted and proud to announce the award-winning writer-director Liz Marshall as executive producer of the documentary ‘Meet the Future’. It’s about the extraordinary development of farmed meat, which can help us save our only home in our fight against climate change. Moby said.
Goodall added, “I am thrilled with the documentary because it is solution-centric. The picture suggests ways to move forward, reducing methane, reducing water and land use, reducing animal suffering and preventing future viral outbreaks. I hope this will brighten your imagination and inspire change. ”
“Meet the Future” is also an executive produced by Kyle Bhagat, Chris Hegdas and Janice Dow. Marshall wrote the film, as well as produced it. It was funded by the New York Community Trust in collaboration with the Documentary Channel, Canada Media Fund and the Redford Center Grants. It was also created with the participation of Rogers Cable Network Fund and Little Walnut.
