Filmmaker and director Robert Kenner is opening people's eyes to food origins in his latest work Food, Inc.
I just saw a trailer for the documentary, and it looks like an awesome primer for people who really don't know about food - which is pretty much the majority of this nation.
Kenner and experts like "Fast Food Nation" author Eric Schlosser and the acclaimed Michael Pollan offer their insights into the truly disgusting and disturbing aspects of mainstream food culture (e.g. factory farms, agribusiness and the obsessive high-yield-at-any-cost mentality).
I can't wait to see the whole documentary. Over the next few weeks, Food, Inc. will be playing at select film festivals. Hopefully it will be distributed in wide release...a foodie can dream, right?
