Print this article In "Food, Inc.," the journey from pasture to plate is thoroughly documented by filmmaker Robert Kenner. He examines the effects of large-scale factory farming on the environment and our health.
The film is narrated by Michael Pollan, author of "The Omnivores Dilemma." He is also a long-time critic of modern farming practices.
Food activists who enjoyed "Fast Food Nation" and "Supersize Me" will appreciate the scope and insight of Food, Inc.
Food, Inc first looks into the controversial practices of the meat industry in America. Kenner then turns the lens to corn and soy, which account for the vast majority of produce farmed in the US.
"I didn't want to make a film that stops people from wanting to go eat," Kenner told PBS. "But I wanted to make a film that made us think about where this food comes from and figure out how we can have a system that's going be a sustainable system."
Kenner is no stranger to the documentary world. He won an Emmy in the category of Exceptional Merit in Nonfiction Filmmaking for his work on the documentary "The American Experience: Two Days in October," which appeared as part of series on PBS.
