Modern culture encourages mass production including the commercialization of animals and poeple In the film Baraka the effects of mass production and commercialization are contrasted in serene nature scenes and other scenes from todays busiest industrial cities First of all mass production is the manufacturing of goods in large quantities Baraka shows several examples of this the most memorable one takes place at a poultry factory in Hong Kong The assembly line of baby chicks being tossed around as their wings are clipped and beaks are burned is painful to watch The blank almost cold expression on each of the workers faces who handle the innocent baby chicks is disturbing This scene shows how people can become programmed and objectified or only beworth the quantity of product that they produce is mind boggling Another example as a result of mass production takes place in the scene where acres and acres of trees are being cut down to make paper Considering the amount of recycling we do today it is hard for one to consider the need to tear down as many new trees as we do The mass murder of beautiful innocent trees that produce oxygen and homes for animals are examples of how mass production ravages nature to provide material things for modern cultures Defined as applying methods of business to exploit or produce something to make a profit commercialization has the same effects as and is also a result of mass production In a previous example at a poultry factory in Hong Kong the workers are shown with blank exhausted expressions on their faces It is hard to tell if they are at all content with their occupation The lack of emotion and blind focus onproducing product is all that is shown One might conclude that the workers are unhappy since it is common for factory workers
