" EXCLUSIVE TO PALACE CENTRO
In the Oscar nominated new documentary FOOD, INC., filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on the U.S. food industry - an industry that has often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of farmers, the safety of workers and our own environment.
How is it that products are no longer seasonally dependent and miraculously stay fresh?
Kenner unravels the spinning of a pastoral lie, where agrarian fantasies presented on product packaging, like docile cows and green meadows, are nothing more than that – fantasies. We may now have bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, insecticide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won't go bad, but we also have new strains of harmful bacteria, we are riddled with widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults
Featuring interviews with experts and forward-thinking entrepreneurs, this film dishes up surprising – and shocking – truths about what we eat, how it's produced, what we've become as consumers and where we're going from here."
