King Corn is a feature documentary about two friends, one acre of corn, and the subsidized crop that drives our fast-food nation. In King Corn, Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis, best friends from college on the east coast, move to the heartland to learn where their food comes from. With the help of friendly neighbors, genetically modified seeds, and powerful herbicides, they plant and grow a bumper crop of America's most-productive, most-subsidized grain on one acre of Iowa soil. But when they try to follow their pile of corn into the food system, what they find raises troubling questions about how we eat-and how we farm Written by
A Must See for Anyone Wondering What's Up with our Food/Health Care sit in the US
This film is a must see for anyone interested not only in food production and food policy in the United States, but also what ailes (sp?) us as a nation. The US government, and the agricultural industry has unfortunately created a system that is out of whack. While we spend less than at any time on food, we are spending more and more on health-care (the one point I wish the film had made more directly). This film should be seen by all Americans. I saw another comment that quibbled with the particulars in the film. The film is not a doctoral thesis, it is a piece of art trying to raise awareness. I also thought the device of the two filmmakers staking out an acre of corn and following it through the year as a spine to the story was quite wonderful, as well as the animations that they did with a still camera. As far as I know you can also get the film to screen in your community from the film's website. I highly recommend it - would be great food for thought.
