"Food Inc." is All About Production

The Foodcycles blog writes about a new film called Food Inc., featuring Michael Pollan (In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto) and Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation). The film is all about the corporate impact on what we eat, specifically what has happened to food production over the past few decades. To quote the LA Times:

Producer-director Robert Kenner's movie, which had a screening [in early February], covers a range of issues, from the effects of corn syrup on health and farming, to the ways animals are raised and killed, food-borne illnesses and the plight of farmers. The filmmakers, as you might guess from this image from the movie, don't like a lot of what they see. "Food, Inc." opens in June in 20 cities, Kenner said. It was shown at the Toronto Film Festival. Warning to squeamish meat-eaters: Shots in chicken houses, slaughterhouses and elsewhere could be tough to watch.

I'm looking forward to seeing the film, which promises to make it that much more difficult to look a McNugget in the (excessively processed, terribly fatty) eye.
