As its Orwellian title suggests, the “Animal Farm” program stems from the theme but widens it by showing how humanity's disastrous impact on the environment also affects the wildlife. If not immediate, the boomerang effect usually is rather fierce.

Diary of Cattle

David Darmadi, Lidia Afrilita

Indonesia2019Documentary17'31"DCPColor15

Brutal in its simplicity and directness, this documentary presents a day in the life of a herd of cows··· as they graze into an open landfill. Perhaps more alarming than the unforgettable images of these inoffensive and unaware animals munching trash, is knowing what it will inevitably lead to in regards to their health - not to mention to the food chain.

As man-made ecological disasters impact the environment durably, our very cities may become actual shelters or turn into hazardous places, as much for us as for the wildlife. Try running for your life from a pack of hungry tigers in the remnants of a derelict megalopolis! 
Luzon

Taiwan2017Fiction13'01"DCPColor12

Two fishermen on two boats, coming from two neighboring countries··· and a barrel of nuclear waste floating inconspicuously in the open sea. In this satirical allegory for how serious, life-threatening issues such as radioactive waste are being thrown around by states like diplomatic hot potatoes, the fishermen’s childish rivalry can only be matched by the sea’s unpredictability!  
The Toxic Pigs of Fukushima

Otto Bell

USA, Japan 2020Documentary35'DCPColor15

Since a tsunami provoked a nuclear reactor meltdown in Fukushima in 2011, this devastated area has seen a rise in numbers of wild boars. As they are irradiated, the government tries to avoid their spread by enlisting local hunters. If one film could best represent how man-made ecological disasters, problems and tragedies keep cascading uncontrollably, this one would be it. As heartbreaking and infuriating as it is eye-opening.
