Madeleine Parry - documentary filmmaker
Can you eat meat and really care about the animals on your dinner plate? Can you continue to care for animals if your job is to kill animals ?
These are some of the questions that Madeleine Parry asks in her two award-winning documentaries, MurderMouth and Meatwork.
Madeleine shines a light on society's collective blind spot and sits with the uncomfortable, immovable fact that over 500 million land animals are killed in Australia every year for human consumption. Each animal is being killed by someone and is being eaten by another.
The documentaries weren't easy to produce, they are not easy documentaries to watch and this interview will not be an easy interview to listen to.
Both documentaries were produced by Daniel Joyce from Projector Films.
