FOOD, INC. (Magnolia Pictures)

http://www.foodincmovie.com/

 

In Food, Inc., filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our 
nation’s food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly 
that’s been hidden from the American consumer 
with the consent of our government’s  regulatory agencies, USDA and 
FDA. Our nation’s food supply is now 
controlled by a handful of corporations  that often put profit ahead of 
consumer health, the livelihood of the 
American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. We have 
bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect 
pork chop, insecticide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that 
won’t go bad, but we also have new strains of 
e coli–the harmful bacteria that causes illness for an estimated 
73,000 Americans annually. We are riddled with 
widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level 
of diabetes among adults 

Featuring interviews with such experts as Eric Schlosser (Fast Food 
Nation), Michael Pollan (The Omnivore’s Dilemma) along with forward 
thinking social entrepreneurs like Stonyfield Farms’ 
Gary Hirschberg and Polyface Farms’ Joe Salatin, Food, Inc. reveals 
surprising — and often shocking truths — 
about what we eat, how it’s produced, who we have become as a nation 
and where we are going from here.
