If you are what you eat, what are you made of?
That was the question we posed to Filmocracy contestants, then, we provided the video clips, and they provided a point of view.
The Independent Lens presentation of KING CORN was the backdrop for the first inaugural Filmocracy mashup contest. KING CORN is a feature documentary about two friends, one acre of corn and the subsidized crop that drives our fast-food nation.
And the winner is:
“Corn King Takes Over the World” by Kylee Darcy
Grand prizewinner Kylee Darcy won $1,000 and her short film,
“Corn King Takes Over the World” will be screened throughout the country at Community Cinema events. She also gets a KING CORN DVD, soundtrack and other fabulous corn-free prizes! The most popular and highest rated videos get cool prizes too.
