At dawn, the animals file into the slaughterhouse in their hundreds. Men are there to greet them; their slaughter is the first stage of their transformation. 
Once it has been fuelled, the chain sets the pace of work: both animal nature and the worker’s know-how are subjected to the rhythm. 


From the beast to the meat, from industrial systematization to packaged products, how is our consumption determined?

To which extent does a production mode define our culture and aspirations; for wich good and what mankind?
