"Cowspiracy" by Kip Andersen and Keegan Kuhn

7 October, 18:30, Italian Cultural Institute

Runtime: 85'

CowspiracyAnimal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, water consumption and pollution, is responsible for more greenhouse gases than the transportation industry, and is a primary driver of rainforest destruction, species extinction, habitat loss, topsoil erosion, ocean “dead zones,” and virtually every other environmental ill. Yet it goes on, almost entirely unchallenged. Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret is a groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary following filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today – and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it.

The film will be followed by a Q&A with guest speakers:

  • Henning Steinfeld, Chief, Livestock Information, Sector Analysis and Policy Branch, Animal Production and Health Division, FAO, United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization
  • Ulf Björnholm Ottosson, Head of Brussels Liaison Office to the EU Institutions, UNEP, United Nations Environment Programme
  • Rosita Zilli, Deputy Secretary – General at Euro Coop, European Community of Consumer Co-operatives


The film is in English and has a running time of 85 minutes

Those who arrive late may not be admitted.
