King Corn

USA, 2007, Aaron Woolf

When two east coast college buddies move to Iowa to grow an acre of corn, they learn firsthand about industrial food production, the plight of family-owned farms, government subsidies, genetically modified seed, herbicides and fertilizers, and other insidious truths about our fast-food nation. This is a rare nonfiction film that sounds the alarm without sacrificing humor and human interest.
