Welcome to the real world: The Meatrix — a trilogy of Matrix-spoof animated short films exploring agriculture corporations and the ugly truths behind our fast food nation. Vegetarians and Keanu Reeves fans have never had so much in common. Take a peek — free your mind.
In the trilogy, you'll join Leo the pig (Neo) and spunky Chickity the chicken (Trinity) as they're introduced to the Meatrix by all-knowing Moophius the bull (Morpheus), whose trench coat and dark shades are really too awesome for words. Leo and Chickity thought they lived in a world of rosy-cheeked milkmaids, vast green pastures, and healthy animals — but then they took Moophius' blue pills. It turns out they live in a world of RBGH growth hormones, antibiotic-fed cows, de-beaked chickens, mistreated Agri-corp workers, grey factories, and cooped-up animals that never see sunlight, touch the ground or breathe clean air. Things aren't as pretty as Leo and Chickity had thought.
But there is hope. Remember: Small family farms are trying to free us from Agri-Corp, but they can only show us the door. We're the ones who have to walk through it.
