"Meat Hooked!" is a documentary about meat and the rise and fall and rise again of butchers and butchering. As cities become more alike, there is a yearning to go back to a seemingly more authentic time, to a time when a sense of place was concrete, not virtual. Butchers and butcher shops fit into that yearning. It allows the consumer to have more control over what we eat and a face to face experience in an increasingly virtual world. The film follows three butchers today: Jessica And Joshua Applestone at Fleisher’s in Kingston, NY; Jeffrey Ruhalter at Essex Street Market on Manhattan’s Lower East Side; and Jake Dickson at Chelsea Market, near the Meat Packing District of Manhattan. The film follows the butchers from farm to table and includes scenes at a recent pig slaughter in Stone Ridge, NY and an organic farm in Schoharie, NY.
