Waste c 2016 short film

 Duration, 6m 18s

 

The modern poultry industry breeds chickens either  for eggs or for meat.  Male chicks of the egg-laying variety are superfluous, mere by-products of industrial farming. So as soon as they hatch, these chicks are killed in gas chambers or in mincing machines. Bred, born, then obliterated. Essentially, they are waste.  This piece of work is not a statement supporting animal welfare; nor is its purpose to drive the viewer towards veganism. Instead, by exploring mass production and consumption the work asks us to consider an aspect of the world that, consciously or not, is common to us all.

Casta Diva begins,  a single voice, before a second and third join, distorting the first, becoming an unlikely, uncomfortable collaboration. The chicks, newly defrosted twist and turn on fishing hooks, merging and flowing into one another, fast then slow, limp.
