A new documentary, ‘Farming Humans’, by Hiltz Squared Media is about to turn the typical social experiment on its head when it takes 12 human volunteers and drops them into the lives of factory farmed animals. Hosted by animal activist Simone Reyes, the documentary will provide a candid look at the experiences of animals in the American food system.
As the volunteers arrive at the facility, they will be broken down into three groups, pigs, cows and chickens, and tattooed and branded with serial numbers that will become their identities. Each volunteer with be equipped with a camera so that they can document his/her experiences. During the ten days that the experiment takes place, the human volunteers will undergo the same horrific treatment that factory farmed animals experience except, at the end of their stay, the humans are set free while the farm animals are sentenced for life.
The volunteers will be supervised by a team of professionals as they are prepped for slaughter, prodded, shocked, kicked, branded and kept in enclosures so small that they are unable to turn around while smelling the feces and rotting flesh from their neighbors. We hope this honest, firsthand view of the horrors animals endure will change the way we think about factory farms forever.
