ABOUT THE FILM:
Dairy in New Zealand is big business. We are the globe’s biggest milk exporter – but that success may be coming at devastating costs, as this local David-and-Goliath documentary illustrates.
MILKED sees young activist Pere Huriwai-Seger (formerly Chris Huriwai), raised in the rural community of Ōtaua, looking to make sense of the conflicting claims coming from both the dairy industry and environmental protection camps. Is New Zealand dairy farming really the most sustainable and efficient in the world, as dairy giant Fonterra claims, or is that just greenwashing over the true ecological cost of business? Chris hits the road to find out.
Featuring interviews with high-profile contributors such as famed primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall, environmentalist and former actress Suzy Amis Cameron, and Cowspiracy co-director Keegan Kuhn, MILKED reveals the behind-the-scenes reality of the New Zealand dairy farming fairy tale. It uncovers alarming information about the impacts of the industry on the environment and our health, leading up to the discovery that we’re on the edge of the biggest global disruption of food and agriculture in history.
An impactful global story told with a local eye, the film also points to what New Zealand and other countries can do to change their fate.
