15-Minute Cinema: “Food, Inc.”

Documentarian Robert Kenner

Filmmaker Robert Kenner

47,000 items in the supermarket, almost all of them the “idea” of food rather than actual food.

Have we been eating corporate art these last 50 years instead of our vegetables?

Take a look at the trailer for Robert Kenner’s Food, Inc., a documentary Alice Waters says is the film she’s been waiting for all her life, and that Variety says does for food what Jaws did for the beach.

    I think there’s needs to be a T/S running tally of all seemingly important non-military data that Cheney-W decided to classify or remove from public view. So far:

    1. Classified retreating-ice photos (Scorched Earth blog).
    2. Classified data on texting while driving (Paradigms Lost blog)
    3. Restrictions of photos of industrial food processes (Some Backstory. . .)

    What else?

  2. collapse expand

    Scott, I love this idea, and I fear the list will be long. But wouldn’t it be useful?

    About Me

    I've written short pieces for The New Yorker about the first Arab prince in outer space, a Ph.D who travels the world studying garbage, an Australian attorney who played werewolves in the movies, and the man who set the “Pledge of Allegiance” to music. I've written pieces for The New York Times about olfactory sculpture dropped from a plane on thousands of tiny cards on New Year's Eve, and inscriptions on old buildings that have become ironic over time. At ABC, Bravo, A&E, and PBS, I wrote live interviews with celebrities and docs about Hemingway, Dorothy Parker, and lesser known poets. It's culture and arts. It's people in the news. It's the ongoing comedy of who we are. I hope you enjoy it here at True/Slant and write in to tell me what you think. Also hope to hear your ideas and stories at "Third Screen" on www.huffingtonpost and www.thirdscreenconfidential.com

    What I'm Up To

    Ping pong project

    A piece called Hip Hop Meets Ping Pong.  The thrill of victory.   The agony of defeat.  And you can dance to it.  Stay tuned.
