Our Daily Bread
DIRECTOR: NIKOLAUS GEYRHALTER
Geyrhalter’s awed and terrified document of high-tech agribusiness practices is a very far cry from “The Farmer in the Dell”—in fact it might take place on another planet, in a time beyond that of humankind. Surveying the operation of mechanized farming techniques in a series of cool, meticulous tracking frames, its soundtrack dominated by industrial clamor, Our Daily Bread draws its form from its subject matter, as amazing and alienating as the processes it records.
Screening in the series Icarus Films at 40.
