In Theaters Now: “Food, Inc.”

by |

Food, Inc Do you know how the food you’re eating got to your table? Food, Inc., a new film by Robert Kenner, aims to remove the veil of mystery that has shrouded our nation’s food supply and illuminate exactly how corporations are putting profit ahead of our health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of farm workers and the environment.

The film features interviews with experts such as Eric Schlosser, author of Fast Food Nation and Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore’s Dilemma as well as social entrepreneurs like Stonyfield Farm’s Gary Hirshberg and Polyface Farms’ Joe Salatin.

Food, Inc. opened in select theaters in New York and California this weekend, and will be coming soon to a theater near you.

Update: Food, Inc. will be featured in 2010 on POV! Stay tuned for details.

    This is excellent! I am so happy that another Future of Food-style film is out to help the public, and that it’s hitting some big theaters in major cities everywhere. Every single person needs to know where their food comes from, how it’s “treated,” the freak nature and disease-promoting aspects of genetic modification, and the troubles with fluoride pesticides that pervade all “regular” food in markets. I have been working to get the fluoride out of our water in Durango, Colorado because fluoridation practices are outdated and remarkably malignant in light of scientific evidence regarding the toxicity involved. Most folks think you can just wash off the pesticides… but don’t know that the plants grow by pulling them into their cells through poisoned PWSs (public water supplies). This movie will be a great wake-up call. Rock on!
    Light and Truth,
