Description

How does the growing demand for meat in China affect the Amazon rainforest? And why do Brazilian farmers grow soybeans in Mozambique? Soyalism follows the entire chain of pork production, from vast soybean plantations in the Brazilian rainforest to hypermodern slaughterhouses in China, where a spokesperson proudly reports that they can slaughter 600 pigs an hour. Documentary reveals the disastrous consequences of the ever-increasing industrialization of the food industry for both humans and the environment.
