Fortunately, a few outspoken critics are leading a charge against the food industrys high-powered lobbyists, and theyve made a movie, Food, Inc., which you can see this Sunday at the Miami Beach Cinematheque. Eric Schlosser, author of Fast Food Nation, teamed up with filmmaker Robert Kenner to dish the truth about what your grocery stores and restaurants arent telling you. Featured interviewees include Michael Pollan, author of In Defense of Food, and Barbara Kowalcyk, whose 2-year-old son Kevin died from eating a piece of contaminated meat. Think shes motivated to change the industry?
