That is not a misspelling in the Meetup name. We will meet (in the traditional sense) at MoMA to see Meat (the movie). For those of you that know you can make the screening I can get you in for $5. Otherwise Film admission is $10 (film admission only, not entire museum). Please let me know by Sunday, February 14 if you will be attending. I will pick up the tickets on Monday, February 15. The film is also being screened on February 21 but it coincides right with our Potluck at the Center.
Please read a review at Vegansaurus.com. In the search box type "meat movie review." It is a well-written and descriptive piece. I can't get the link feature to work at the moment here. Oopsy.
1976. USA. Directed by Frederick Wiseman. As we debate and agonize over the humane treatment of farm animals and the safety of our food, the future of family farms, and the impact of agribusiness on the environment and on workers? rights, Wiseman?s masterful study of one of America?s largest feed lots and meat-processing plants could not be more prescient or more provocative. Meat chronicles the journey of cattle and sheep from the auction block to the butcher block, through a highly automated system that is awesome in its efficiency and haunting in its implications about us as capitalist consumers. Wiseman?s film is a visual tour-de-force, in which tense union negotiations and discussions of profit margins are as riveting and as revelatory as the sequence in which a ?Judas goat? leads lambs to their slaughter. 113 min.
Wednesday, February 17, 2010, 4:00 p.m. , Theater 2, T2
