Written and directed by New Zealand filmmaker Sam Holst, Meathead was nominated at both the Cannes Film Festival and the Berlin International Film Festival. In teh short drama Meathead a school leaver has got a new job at the local abattoir, apparently through his father's connections (though I cannot imagine they are turning people away on a daily basis). As the new kid in this pretty bloody work place, our hero is to be subjected to some harsh words and a fairly innocuous initiation ceremony, which involves sweeping the floor while the rest of the staff repeatedly shout "meathead". How long will it take our hero to become one of the men? More to the point, why would anyone want to work somewhere where sentient creatures are butchered for the sake of a gluttonous species that could feed itself in other ways?
