On Thursday, March 8, 2012 at 7:00 pm at the El Rito Library. Come join us for a night of desserts and a documentary film titled:
3rd Film Series - "King Corn" (What is in our foods?)
King Corn is a feature documentary about two friends, one acre of corn, and the subsidized crop that drives our fast-food nation. In King Corn, Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis, best friends from college on the east coast, move to the heartland to learn where their food comes from. With the help of friendly neighbors, genetically modified seeds, and powerful herbicides, they plant and grow a bumper crop of America's most-productive, most-subsidized grain on one acre of Iowa soil. But when they try to follow their pile of corn into the food system, what they find raises troubling questions about how we eat-and how we farm. Written by King Corn
A discussion will follow after the film.
Desserts, popcorn and drinks will be served. Hope to see you there!
