CORN–FREE FILM SCREENING
Don’t miss the third film in GMO Free NJ’s summer film festival–King Corn. KING CORN is a 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.
Features Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore’s Dilemma, and Earl Butz, former US Secretary of Agriculture.
This event is free and open to the public. Bring a friend Thursday.
