Film Review: Unity
Unity, directed by Shaun Monson
SHAUN Monson’s previous documentary Earthlings (2005) – which apparently dealt with man’s relationship to animals in rather confronting ways – might prepare you for the opening scene of Unity.
A steer waits in a chute for its turn to enter the darkness of the abattoir. Seeing the one ahead enter the void, it seems to know instinctively that what is ahead is not pleasant. We see its apprehension, its fear, its scramble to get out of there.
