Food Inc.

food_incThe documentary by Robert Kenner is getting tons of press. And let’s not forget there’s a book, too,  published by Public Affairs in conjunction with Participant Media. I’m really looking forward to both the film and the book. In today’s National Post, Kenner talks about how amazed he was by the power wielded by the food industry in the US:

“I’ve made 15 films so far in my career, and I can tell you, I’ve spent more on legal fees for Food Inc. than on all those other films combined, times three,” he says. “I could’ve been doing a movie about nuclear terrorism and had greater access to information.

“It’s crazy – I just never knew how litigious the world of food was when I entered it,” he adds. “I never realized how subversive it was. But the fact is that anyone who speaks out about these things does so at his or her peril … It’s scary, it’s really scary.”
