For this provocative exposé on the modern food industry, filmmaker Katja Gauriloff travelled over 30,000 kilometers to witness a single can of ravioli being made. Throughout her travels across seven different countries, Gauriloff introduces the audience to seven different workers who all contributed to making this product, including a miner in Brazil, a pig farmer in Denmark, and a tomato picker in Portugal. Gauriloff eschews editorializing to allow the images and the workers’ emotional stories to speak for themselves.
