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.
