Food For Thought Film Series: KING CORN
The Foodshed Alliance of Blairstown, NJ and Grow it Green Morristown of Morristown, NJ are partnering together to present an extraordinary film series focused on the intersection of farming practices, our food supply, and how we are nourishing our families.
February 7, 2013: KING CORN: King Corn is a feature documentary about two friends, one acre of corn, and the subsidized crop that drives our fast-food nation. In the film, Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis, best friends from college on the east coast, move to the heartland to learn where their food comes from. With the help of friendly neighbors, genetically modified seeds, and powerful herbicides, they plant and grow a bumper crop of America's most-productive, most-subsidized grain on one acre of Iowa soil. But when they try to follow their pile of corn into the food system, what they find raises troubling questions about how we eat and how we farm.
