When Martha Stewart tweets, we best listen up. She recently mentioned a screening she arranged for employees of a documentary that we just had to see.
The film is called Food, Inc. and reveals what we eat, how it's produced and how it's consumed. It's hitting the silver screen nationwide on June 12, and as of last night, Magnolia Pictures scored placement at South Beach's Regal Cinemas on Lincoln Road -- check it out on June 19.
Industry experts like Michael Pollan (who I'm sure you went to see at his appearance the other week at Books & Books for The Omnivore's Dilemma) and forward thinking
social entrepreneurs including Stonyfield Farms' Gary Hirschberg and
Polyface Farms' Joe Salatin, make cameos.
Next week we will speak to filmmaker Robert Kenner about how he exposes the nasty underbelly of our nation's food industry where corporate profit is rules at the expense of health. It's gonna get ugly, but sometimes that's what it takes to jolt us out of complacence to action.
