As China’s Ministry of Health’s recently-published dietary guidelines urge citizens to eat less meat, we revisit the staggering impact of China’s increasingly protein-rich diet with a talk by the director Jian Yi and the screening of his two short documentaries.
First – the documentary What’s For Dinner?（2009) looks into the rapidly growing consumption of meat in China and the increasing industrialization of agriculture. Through interactions with people across Chinese society, the film examines the impact this big shift in food production and consumption is having on sustainability, public health, food security, climate change, and animal welfare.
Following will be the sequel Six Years on, What’s For Dinner? (2015) revisiting the places and people (including the film crew) in the 2009 film, and posing questions about the future of the country’s food production and consumption.
Jian Yi will then open the floor to questions.
