“Food, Inc.” Director Robert Kenner Interview on Planet Forward

by |

Planet Forward is a collaboration between PBS and George Washington University that asks community members to submit videos offering their ideas for the best way to reduce our carbon footprint. The best videos on PlanetForward.org will be featured in an hour-long Planet Forward broadcast for PBS stations nationwide later this year. In addition to user-submitted videos, the show’s host, Frank Sesno, posts “webisode” interviews with scientists, entrepreneurs and thought leaders with questions submitted by the Planet Forward community.

Yesterday’s webisode featured Food, Inc. director, Robert Kenner. He talks about what he learned about our nation’s food industry, what he thinks will have to happen to make our food production more sustainable and the most surprising thing he encountered while making the film. Watch the interview here, and visit the Plant Forward website for more great interviews!

    I was both appalled and ashamed to view this program. For years I have told my husband and anyone else who would listen that we are killing ourselves by eating the food processed by what is put on/in our food! Thank you for your eye-opening film…perhaps we can affect a change. I am a firm believer that you are what you eat and buy organic whenever possible. We are not able to grow our own vegetables, so our alternatives are slim. What can I do to help???

    “Food Inc”. is a Very well documented film!. I was extremely shocked to learn the amount of power some people/company have on our food intake! I wish more people watch show like yours instead of regular ‘just for fun’ kind of fiction shows. It has created a big impact on my mind. Imagine if it has been watched by majority of the Americans!. I wish more people become aware of the facts about our food industry. I am a vegetarian and we try to buy organic food, but other than that I do not know what else can I do to make changes? If an average woman stop using money on makeup, nails or hair, they can easily afford at least organic milk!
    I think it will be very interesting for you to make a film on two Indian states – Gujarat (west side of India) and Karnatak where most of the people are vegetarians and have been for many generations

    Food Inc is a pretty scary film, and very powerful. If only everybody could watch it, the world would change over night.
