New Wave of Movies with a Message
Food, Inc. by filmmaker Robert Kenner, opening this summer, lifts the veil from our nation’s food industry. It exposes the highly mechanized underbelly hidden from consumers with our government’s consent. “Our nation’s food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations,” the movie notes. “We also have new strains of e-coli, widespread obesity particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults.”
Fuel, an award-winning production 11 years in the making by activist/director Josh Tickell, that has been touring schools and town halls around the country, tracks the rising domination of the petrochemical industry.
