The Good Food Film Festival at the Warner Parks Nature Center offers great films, lively discussion and community connections around the idea that our food system should be locally managed, safe and tasty. The films will show every Tuesday through July 23, at the Nature Center. Movies start at 6:30 pm.
King Corn is a feature documentary about two friends, one acre of corn, and the subsidized crop that drives our fast-food nation. In King Corn, 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.
The Good Food Festival is sponsored in part by Martha’s Catering.
