We do not eat animals

Essen ohne Tiere

"We do not eat animals" explores the phenomenon of vegetarianism from philosophical, religious, historical and socio-cultural perspectives, as well as the various forms of and motives for vegetarian diets. A dinner of "herbal priest" Benedikt Felsinger with Anita Sahni, the president of the Hindu Mandir Society, the largest Hindu community in Austria, serves as a cinematic frame story. The various dishes start a conversation about religiously motivated dietary commandments. For example, the classification of fish as Lenten food that is not subject to the ban on meat, as if it were a "water vegetable." In Hinduism, one of the few religions that generally practice strict vegetarianism, meat-based food is considered an obstacle on the path to Nirvana.
