The Killing Chain

director: Brit Bunkley
original title: The Killing Chain
country: New Zealand
year: 2021
running time: 5 min.


Closed New Zealand’s freezing plants have become ruins with wildlife growing through them. Once they were used by the country’s dominant industry processing livestock into meat and other products, but the industry has been in decline since Britain joined the EEC. Animation permeates the documentary film, with workers arising from archive footages.


Brit Bunkley is a multidisciplinary artist involved in making videos, installations, sculptures and prints. He has created a number of works in the public space, exhibiting his artifacts in galleries and museums worldwide. The frequent topics of his works include majestic landscapes, human wastefulness and paranoid fears of a looming apocalypse.
