This summer, find out the real environmental cost of what’s on your plate. In Takeout: The Documentary, Emmy-nominated filmmaker Michal Siewierski has embarked on an audacious journey to expose the real reasons behind the Amazon forest fires and the alarming rate of deforestation in Brazil, the world’s largest exporter of beef. Takeout is now available on Amazon and iTunes.
“Mainstream media coverage of the catastrophic destruction of the Amazon doesn’t paint the full picture,” said Siewierski. “With Takeout, I wanted to show how the choices we make about what we eat and consume thousands of miles away directly impact the rainforest.”
The film — produced along with music icon and activist, Moby, and entrepreneur and activist Peter Eastwood — highlights how corporate greed, global food consumption, and political corruption create conditions that are irreparably harming our ecosystem.
“As a longtime advocate for a vegan lifestyle, I know the ethical consequences of meat consumption. I was shocked by what we learned during the production of Takeout,” said Moby. “This is a must-watch for anyone who is passionate about combating corruption.”
Takeout features interviews with renowned scientists, politicians, and activists who weave a complex narrative that exposes the bad actors conspiring to line their pockets at the expense of our ecosystem.
Distributed by Gravitas Ventures, the documentary is available on iTunes and Amazon. For more information, please visit http://www.takeoutdocumentary.com.
