King Corn is one of those movies that makes me very, very glad that I shop my local farmers’ market, and that I eat organic as much as I can. The movie is about two young men who decide to grow an acre of corn and follow it to find out how we’ve ended up with so much corn in our diets and in our bodies. What they find out shocks and dismays them to the point that when it comes time to harvest the corn, they try and avoid harvesting and selling their crop. The film contains interviews with Michael Pollan (Omnivore’s Dilemma) and Ken Cook (Environmental Working Group), and is a film that should be seen by anyone that eats. Available from the Earth Cinema Circle.
