"Food Fight" (5th Annual Anti-Corporate Film Festival)
When we walk into a supermarket, we assume that we have the widest possible choice of healthy food. But over the course of the 20th century, our food system has actually been co-opted by corporate forces whose interests do not lie in providing the public with fresh, healthy, and sustainably produced food.
Fortunately, an alternative to Big Agribusiness emerged within the California counter-culture in the late 1960s and early '70s, when a group of anti-corporate protesters led by Alice Waters inadvertantly launched a counter-revolution by creating a food chain outside of the conventional system. The result was the birth of the local/sustainable/organic food movement that has brought taste and variety back to our tables. Directed by Chris Taylor (USA, 2009, 74 minutes).
