British Comedian Makes Vegan Feature Film

Carnage: Swallowing the Past takes a surreal look at the absurdity of exploiting animals for food.


New film Carnage: Swallowing the Past, created by British comedian Simon Amstell, will explore a future where plant-based diets are the norm. Amstell recently announced the cast, which will consist of a host of British celebrities as well as feature vegan musician JME, who will be playing himself in the futuristic film set in 2067. Carnage will be available through streaming service BBC iPlayer this spring. “In a culture obsessed by what’s on our plates,” BBC iPlayer’s Head of Content Victoria Jaye said, “Simon Amstell’s film Carnage imaginatively challenges our attitude towards eating meat, fish, and cheese triangles. Prepare to never look at your dinner the same way again.” While other details about the film are still under wraps, Amstell jokingly stated, “I have written and directed a film about veganism. I’m sorry.”
