“I have written and directed a film about veganism. I’m sorry.”
Set in a utopian 2067, Carnage looks back at a time when human beings ate other animals. For the young people of this time, the idea that their grandparents could have been complicit in a bloodbath of unnecessary suffering is wholly unimaginable. The film aims to break the taboo around Britain’s animal eating past, whilst showing compassion for a generation now seeking therapy to cope with the horror of their unthinkable actions. Carnage combines archive with original drama and is narrated by Simon Amstell, who gives a unique comedic peek into a future where animals live equally amongst humans.
Carnage will premiere on BBC iPlayer in the Spring.

'Simon Amstell has a gift for taking a social norm and gently mocking it until it seems utterly ridiculous. Highly literate... an endearing mixture of offhanded candour and sharp wit. Such ease and understatement makes him very good company' The New York Times
