Food, Inc. 2

U.S., 2024

Special preview screening!

Documentarians Robert Kenner and Melissa Robledo return to the subject of Kenner’s 2009 exposé of the food industry, Food, Inc., for a globe-hopping, post-pandemic look at the current state of the movement to build a “food system that reflects our values.” From COVID-driven disruptions of the food supply to new science that deepens our understanding of how ultra-processed foods impact human health and the environment, the filmmakers, including narrator Eric Schlosser (author of Fast Food Nation), sound new alarms about the dangers of corporate, commodified agriculture. Against this, they contrast a growing network of farm workers, consumers, politicians and entrepreneurs making change at every level to make a compelling case for continued activism and hope. 

DCP, color, 94 min. Directors: Robert Kenner, Melissa Robledo.
