Actor James Cromwell has lent his voice to a new film produced by animal rights group Mercy For Animals, Farm To Fridge.
The film gives viewers an inside look at farms where animals are raised for food. Although brief–only 12 minutes in length–Farm To Fridge is able to examine the cruelty involved in a variety of animal agriculture, including beef, pork, egg, dairy, poultry and seafood.
MFA used footage it obtained from undercover investigations. This is the same group that uncovered the cruelty that took place at the Ohio dairy farm, Conklin, where a worker was charged with 12 counts of animal cruelty after seen punching, stomping and beating cows on tape.
“James was our first choice to narrate the film,” MFA Founder and Executive Director Nathan Runkle told VegNews in an interview. “In addition to being an Academy Award-nominee and seasoned actor, he is an ethical vegan, a dedicated, sincere, and passionate animal-rights advocate, and has an incredibly impactful voice. We approached James about this project and he eagerly jumped on board. We are so thrilled and grateful to be partnering with him.”
