The All
Is One


Slaughterhouse owner Werner Haas has a ton of slaughter waste dumped on his front lawn in the middle of the night. Fuming mad, he files charges against unknown persons and foolishly sets something in motion that can’t be stopped.

A philosophical political social satire.

Director’s statement – Tobias Schönenberg

This film centers around the question of why we humans still eat meat. The German Animal Welfare Act turned fifty years old in 2022. It states that vertebrates may only be killed for “justifiable reasons”. I think that aspect alone is grounds for heated debate. In this film we refrain from indulging in the visual horror of the slaughterhouse, and instead, opt for a delightful, articulate, human ensemble. My hope is that the many varied opinions expressed in the film inspire fiery debate.
