Beautiful motion video from Kris Hofmann which is remake for the German animal rights organisation Albert Schweitzer Stiftung.
Kris Hofmann: “A few years ago we took 7 year old Jessica fishing. When she caught a fish I tried to take it from her so that I could kill it and cook it for dinner. She started to scream, totally outraged by the thought of eating this beautiful creature. We threw the fish back into the lake and instead went to a local supermarket to buy food. ....Jessica chose fish fingers.”
The video entitled Frühstück (Breakfast) was inspired by this lost connection between the food we eat and the animals we love.
The voice-over is from Alexander Hacke, the lead singer from the German industrial band Einstürzende Neubauten. Alexander Hacke is also vegetarian.
I’m not translating the text, it’s obvious what this is about.
