Le documentaire fournit des images sur le fonctionnement des plus grandes industries agroalimentaires européennes que ce soit dans le domaine de la production des fruits et légumes que dans celle de la viande. Ni musique ni commentaire ne viennent accompagner les séquences filmées. Le décor est constitué de champs, d'usines, d'abattoirs, et le réalisateur utilise de longs plans fixes y compris pour filmer les ouvriers en train de manger.

Avec We Feed the World, le documentariste Erwin Wagenhofer propose aux spectateurs un regard sur l'agriculture mondiale moderne. En passant par la Roumanie, l'Autriche, le Brésil, la France et l'Espagne, son enquête se focalise sur la manière dont est fabriqué ce qui arrive dans notre assiette. Il montre que la domination du Nord sur le Sud est prégnante. Comment est-il possible qu'en Afrique l'on achète des produits européens ou asiatiques comme le poulet thaïlandais ? Le réalisateur présente une face peu connue de la mondialisation : en achetant un poulet industriel, on contribue au défrichement de l'Amazonie car le Brésil déforeste pour cultiver le soja qui sert à nourrir les volailles élevées en batterie (90 % de la production de soja du Brésil est exportée). Le documentaire souligne également la différence entre industrie agroalimentaire et petite exploitation. We Feed the World adopte un style « coup de poing » visant à éveiller les consciences.

The film reports many controversies surrounding the use and promotion of genetically modified seeds, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), Agent Orange, and bovine growth hormone. Cases in the United States (including Anniston, Alabama), Canada, India, Mexico, Paraguay, the United Kingdom (Scotland) and France, are explored, claiming that the Monsanto corporation's collusion with governments, pressure tactics, suppression and manipulation of scientific data, and extra-legal practices aided the company's attempts at dominating global agriculture. Scientists, representatives of the United States Food and Drug Administration and the United States Environmental Protection Agency, civil society representatives, victims of the company’s activities, lawyers, and politicians are interviewed.

Ce documentaire retrace, de 1970 à 1981, dans le cadre immense du haut plateau du Larzac, Aveyron (Massif central) mais aussi dans la ville de Paris, les onze années de luttes non violentes et inventives menées par les paysans et paysannes du lieu contre leur expropriation au profit du projet de l'époque d'agrandir le camp d'entraînement militaire du Larzac. Ces hommes et ces femmes de la micro-société paysanne conservatrice et catholique française de l'époque se virent avec étonnement et parfois un peu de crainte épaulés par des dizaines de milliers de personnes qui, pour certaines, ont depuis fait souche dans ce pays en s'installant comme agriculteurs.

Using interviews and overlays of graphics and text, the film presents the current problems facing industrial agriculture. It explores why in the interviewees' view the current industrial model is not up to the task of feeding the world's people. According to the film every calorie of energy contained in a food source currently takes between 10 and 20 calories of crude oil in the production of fertilizers and transportation to produce, leading to a strong dependence of the cost of food on oil prices. As a result of peak oil and increasing oil prices this dependence will lead to ever increasing food prices. According to the film, this dependence already represents a significant weak-spot in the global food supply chain. Additionally, agriculture is already responsible for 40% of greenhouse gas emissions, contributing to climate change. Furthermore, the film argues that the overuse of inorganic fertilizers has been responsible for the loss of soil fertility and threatens the complete loss of usable soil within the next decades through soil erosion and sinking crop yields. These effects, according to the film, can only be partly mitigated by the increased use of those same fertilizers. The loss of workplaces, the concentration of land in the hands of a few (allegedly a farm closes every 23 minutes in France) as well as the dependence on large corporations are enumerated as side effects of the industrialisation of agriculture since the 1920s. Companies, such as Monsanto and Bayer, control everything from seed stock to fertilizers and the necessary chemical mixes for hybrid plants, thereby controlling the entire supply chain. The film argues that this development was supported through subsidies from the World Bank. Interviews with Vandana Shiva, the founder of the Transition Towns movement Rob Hopkins and various agricultural experts serve to argue this viewpoint. The dependence on crude oil is illustrated through the example of the wholesale food market in Rungis.

Our Children Will Accuse Us tells the story of an initiative in Barjac, a commune located in the Gard department in southern France, that decided to introduce organic produce into the town's school cafeteria. The film depicts without concessions the environmental tragedy which threatens the young generation: the poisoning of our country sides by agricultural pesticides (76 000 tons of pesticides used each year in France) and the harm caused to public health and safety.
