The Ecologist Film Unit-produced “Killing Fields: the Battle to Feed Europe’s Factory Farms” is the latest EFU film to be broadcast in the US by satellite channel Link TV. The hard-hitting film, which investigates the human rights abuses and environmental devastation linked to increasing soya cultivation in Paraguay, will feature in the forthcoming edition of Earth Focus, which carries ”under-publicised stories on how changes to the Earth’s resources & climate are affecting people all around the world”.
LinkTV is available as a free 24/7 channel in 34 million US homes. Approximately 5.8 million adults in the US are regular viewers of LinkTV on satellite. Link’s website has an average of 200,000 unique visitors each month.
The Ecologist Film Unit (EFU) is a unique production company jointly operated by Ecostorm and the world’s leading environmental affairs magazine, The Ecologist. Launched in 2008, the EFU has, to date, produced seven films on a range of topical and largely unreported environmental issues, with a particular focus on investigating unpalatable aspects of the food industry. Further films are in development.
