  • DOCUMENTARY / Food Inc. documentary: Food, Inc. unveils some of the sombre practices underpinning the American food industry, exploring how corporations place profits before consumer health, worker safety and the environment. This documentary argues that industrial production methods are not only inhumane, but they are also unsustainable from an economic and environmental standpoint. Filmmaker Robert Kenner visits farms and slaughterhouses and witnesses first-hand the disturbing conditions that prevail, such as chickens being grown so fast that they are unable walk properly, cows eating feed laced with chemicals, and workers risking their own safety to ensure that these products are made cheaply for the market. He also interviews various players in the industry including CEOs, advocates, authors and lobbyists. For many people, the ideal meal is convenient, low-cost and delicious. Food, Inc. looks into the true cost of putting price and convenience over nutritional and environmental considerations, presenting the findings in a way that is engaging, informative and accessible to all.
