Details

Green Initiatives is extremely privileged to work directly with the makers of ‘Whats for Dinner’ and ‘Pig City’ for a special Shanghai screening of these two short films, over beer, beverages and plenty of engaging discussions.

During this special two-film-screening event we will be joined by Wanqing Zhou and Jian Yi (TBC), the promoter and director of ‘Whats for Dinner’ respectively. We will also be joined by Marta Pozo of MVRDV, the brains behind the ‘Pig City’ concept.

Snacks, juices and beer will be provided for all attendees for an donation of 50RMB.

Film Synopsis:

Whats for Dinner (30-min)
A short documentary that provides a unique look into the rapidly growing consumption of meat in China and the increasing industrialization of agriculture. Through interactions with people across Chinese society, the film examines the impacts this big shift in food production and consumption is having on sustainability, public health, food security, climate change, and animal welfare.

Pig City (15-min)
‘Pig City’ is a conceptual project and a film about raising pigs in skyscrapers due to the increasing demand of pork, where people consume meat without questioning where it came from. In a hypothetical scenario very relevant to current times the film questions whether people need to eat so much meat and/or would they continue to meat if the pork was produced in these pig-skyscrapers.

Seats are very limited, and interest (for these films) is very high already. So hurry up and register for the event!
