Food, Inc. (7-Sep-2008)

Director: Robert Kenner

Keywords: Documentary

Documentary examines the troubling inner workings of America's corporate food industry.

ABSTRACT
Muckraking filmmaker Robert Kenner provides viewers with an unflinching look at America's corporate food industry, combining shocking stories of new, antibiotic-resistant strains of E. coli and obesity run amok with facts about the present-day state of agribusiness to paint a troublesome picture of hegemonic food producers throwing caution and common sense to the wind in their pursuit of artificially "perfect" product. Critically-acclaimed, uncomfortable viewing for "foodies" and casual diners alike; jump-started the all-natural, anti-GMO trend in American cuisine, for better or for worse.
