Producing more greenhouse gases than cars, meat consumption is predicted to double by 2050, bringing with it a climate catastrophe if we continue with our current model of factory farming. A potential solution to this impending disaster may lie with “clean meat,” a visionary science that produces lab-grown meat without killing animals. But in a race to alter diets and save the planet, can this new approach to food win over omnivorous skeptics? Following the innovative California start-up Memphis Meats as they ramp up production and navigate a fast-moving industry, this Hot Docs 2020 selection makes it clear we’re on the cusp of an edible revolution.

The film will be available for 48 hours from when you start the stream. Please note streaming is only possible from inside Canada. Need assistance? Visit our FAQ page or email us at
