Food, Inc.

Before we got married, my wife worked at a place called Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture in upstate New York. It's a working farm that promote local and organic agriculture. I turned into a foodie because of her. I've read Omnivore's Dilemma and other books, I shop at a farmer's market when I can...

For a long time, I've been wanting to put together a documentary about the food industry that would present the story of what is really going on, the things people don't know about the food they eat. It was always a project in the back of my mind, but lacking documentary experience and funding, I wasn't in a rush to put it together. Not suprisingly, Robert Kenner beat me to it.

The doc looks extremely well put together but the content is the most important. I don't really deal with politics on this blog (except the politics of Hollywood) but I think this an important issue that few people know about, so please take the time to watch the trailer below and see the movie.
