      Meat the Future

      2020 1 hr. 24 min. Documentary TRAILER for Meat the Future: Trailer 1 List
      80% 5 Reviews Tomatometer Imagine a world where real meat is produced sustainably without the need to breed, raise and slaughter animals. This is no longer science fiction, it's now within reach. At the forefront of this urgent frontier is Mayo Clinic trained cardiologist Dr. Uma Valeti, the co-founder and CEO of Upside Foods (previously Memphis Meats), the leading start-up of the "cultivated" meat revolution. From the world's first meatball which cost $18,000 per pound to the first chicken fillet and duck a l'orange for half the cost, the film follows Valeti and his team over five years as the cost of production plummets, and consumers' eye the imminent birth of this timely industry.

      Noel Murray Los Angeles Times The movie lays out key data points that persuasively — if a bit dryly — position laboratories as the inevitable future of food. Apr 8, 2022 Full Review Lena Wilson New York Times If you’re not well-versed in bioengineering or food regulation, it’s a bit of a slog. Apr 6, 2022 Full Review Guy Lodge Variety It'll connect with general audiences who may have encountered the subject of slaughter-free meat via buzzword-heavy magazine articles, but haven't got into the chewier details. May 29, 2020 Full Review Dennis Harvey 48 Hills Meat the Future does not conceal its enthusiasm for this foodstuff horizon. But then by the end, the viewer is pretty likely to feel the same way. Apr 8, 2022 Full Review Jennie Kermode Eye for Film The sort of documentary which may well increase in value with the passing of time. Rated: 3.5/5 Apr 7, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
