As part of the project Feeding and Fueling Europe, "Killing Fields: the Battle to Feed Factory Farms" seeks to illustrate the hidden chain of destruction from the factory farms in Europe to the forests of South America.
The documentary looks at the huge soy plantations in South America that are wiping out the local wildlife, negatively contributing to climate change and forcing thousands of indigenous people from their land. Soy plantations have been growing in recent years due to the huge demand for the crop in Europe to feed factory farmed pigs, chickens and cows.
Killing Fields reveals the true cost of growing soy in South America, suggesting that both South America and Europe are being harmed in the unsustainable practice of factory farming.
