First Person | Curt Ellis on How Docs Like 'Weight of the Nation' Are Making America Healthier

Not long after I graduated from college, I co-created the 2007 documentary "King Corn," working with my cousin Aaron Woolf (director/producer) and my best friend Ian Cheney (co-producer) to tell the story of one tiny acre of grain and its fate in America’s big food system.

One image has stuck with me more than other during that time, the shot right before the closing credits: a high-angle wide captured by Aaron from atop a grain bin, of Ian and me standing on the edge of our empty field, surveying the square of black dirt that was left after we trucked our harvest to the elevator. We had spent our year, it turned out, growing 10,000 pounds of fast food. Enough feed for 4,000 corn-fed hamburgers; enough starch to make »
