nov11Modern techniques in food production pose grave risks to our health and environment. Food, Inc., exposes how unfettered corporations subvert laws and commandeer subsides in the creation of shocking monopolies. Focus on global criminal Monsanto, a corporate monster that has expanded its control over soybeans from 2% of the American market to 90% in the last decade. Monsanto is a modern day evil Goliath crushing small family farm Davids. This film portrays stories of heartbreak and outrage, but the film carefully channels these emotions towards opportunities for activism. Bon appetit!
