    Coming Attractions

    Over the past ten days I have had the pleasure of watching two upcoming, vastly different food and nutrition documentaries.

    First up? Food, Inc — an incredibly engrossing and harrowing look at the state of farming and food processing in the United States from the people who brought you An Inconvenient Truth.

    To become familiar with the subject matter before its June release date, visit The Meatrix, where all the grizzly details of meat production are explained.

    I also recommend checking this link to see if Food, Inc. will be screened at a film festival near you before its limited big-screen debut later this Summer.

    This is a MUST-SEE for anyone interested in farm policy, agricultural subsidies, agro-business, and the current state of the United States’ food chain. You might want to bring some anxiety medication with you, since the tone of the movie is extremely “doomsday” (in my opinion, sometimes annoyingly so).

    On a more lighthearted note, this past Thursday I had the pleasure of watching upcoming kid-friendly documentary What’s On Your Plate?, “[which] follows two eleven-year-old African-American [New York City] kids as they explore their place in the food chain [and] talk to each other, food activists, farmers, new friends, storekeepers, their families, and the viewer, in their quest to understand what’s on all of our plates.”

    While certainly softer (and much easier for children to grasp) than Food, Inc., What’s On Your Plate? showcases issues of local agriculture, school nutrition, and big business with very little preaching or finger wagging.

    PS: I predict an Oscar nomination for Food, Inc.

      Got my tickets for a showing of Food, Inc. at NYU in May, with a panel discussion with Joel Salatin of Polyface Farm afterward.
