FILM DETAILS

SYNOPSIS

Meat the Future is a timely documentary about ‘cultivated meat’, a food science that grows real meat from animal cells, a revolution in food production, proposing a sustainable way to feed the world in the future, without the need to breed and slaughter animals. At the forefront of this urgent new frontier is cardiologist Dr. Uma Valeti, the co-founder and CEO of Memphis Meats, one of the leading start-ups in the field. From a meatball which cost $18,000 per pound in 2016 to the world’s first “clean” chicken fillet in 2017 for half the cost, the film follows Valeti over three years as production prices continue to plummet and consumers eye the birth of this industry.
