Film Forum: Robert Kenner - Food Inc. (2009)

"Food Inc." Film Forum (June 12, 2009)

How much do we really know about the food we buy at our local supermarkets and serve to our families? In FOOD, INC., producer-director Robert Kenner and investigative authors Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation) and Michael Pollan (The Omnivore... Read More’s Dilemma) lift the veil off of the food industry – an industry that has often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihoods of American farmers, the safety of workers and our own environment. The filmmakers expose the highly mechanized underbelly that’s been deliberately hidden from the American consumer. They illustrate the dangers of a food system controlled by powerful corporations that don’t want you to see, think about or criticize how our food is made. FOOD, INC. also reminds us that despite what appears to be at times a hopeless situation, each of us still has the ability to vote on this issue every day – at breakfast, lunch and dinner.
