Award-winning filmmaker Robert Kenner worked for more than six years to bring Food, Inc. to the screen. His previous films have played theatrically, on television and to President Bill Clinton and Vice President Al Gore at the White House.
Prior to directing Food, Inc., Kenner received the 2006 Peabody, the Emmy for exceptional merit in Non-Fiction Film-Making and the Grierson (British Documentary) for his Vietnam War documentary Two Days in October. His other credits include “The Road to Memphis” segment of Martin Scorsese’s epochal The Blues series on PBS; “War Letters” for PBS’ American Experience; and numerous specials for National Geographic, including Don’t Say Goodbye, which was screened at the White House and won CableACE, Genesis and Emmy Awards. Kenner has also directed television commercials for ad agency giant Goodby, Silverstein & Partners. His “Fran” spot for Hallmark was named to Adweek’s list of Best Spots of the Year, and Origins, a company history Kenner made for Hewlett-Packard, won two Tele Awards and an Aegis Award.
