"How much do we really know about the food we buy at the grocery store? Filmmaker Robert Kenner talks about his documentary, Food, Inc., which is up for an Oscar. The film raises questions about the safety of our food."
From a write-up on the February 23rd interview on "Talk to the Nation" with streaming media links here. They also reference/make available an earlier interview with both Robert Kenner and Michael Pollan in June of 2009:
"The new documentary Food Inc. takes aim at corporate giants behind the U.S. food supply. As director Robert Kenner and food advocate and author Michael Pollan tell Steve Inskeep, they made the film in order to raise Americans' awareness about where their food really comes from.
Pollan says he wanted to address "the pastoral illusion we're spinning in the way we market food... You would think it comes from farms and that ranches with big hats are producing the meat."
In fact, say Pollan and Kenner, America's food comes primarily from enormous assembly lines, where animals and workers are being abused."
How marvelous that these issues are going mainstream! An Oscar nomination for a documentary that has a large chunk of it covering the evils of factory farming. Unbelievable. Here's a link to the "Food, Inc." website with trailer and more. Wouldn't it be cool if they won?
