Farmageddon: The films

Compassion CEO, Philip Lymbery, visits a farm in China
Compassion CEO, Philip Lymbery, visits a farm in China.

I'm Philip Lymbery, Chief Executive of Compassion in World Farming. Over three years, I travelled the world bearing witness to the hidden cost of cheap meat and the devastating impact of factory farming – on people, animals and our planet.

The result - Farmageddon - is a wake-up call, exposing factory farming as one of the most pressing issues of our time; responsible for unparalleled food waste and damage to our health and the countryside, and the biggest cause of animal cruelty on the planet.

Farmageddon on film

In the following films, I outline the global scale of our broken food system: Over the coming months, I’ll be releasing exclusive videos exploring the stories found in Farmageddon; the brave people I spoke to, the incredible things I saw, and the shocking facts they don’t want you to know. Stay tuned.

Warning: contain flashing images.
