food, inc.

A couple of days ago I mentioned Food, Inc. in a post about, of course, food. If you're interested in seeing the film, and maybe even asking the director a few questions, it's playing at Film Forum for a limited engagement that begins tomorrow (Friday, June 12). Director Robert Kenner will be at 4 shows, Friday, June 12 and Saturday, June 13, both at 6pm and 8pm.

Joel Salatin, a farmer who raises pastured animals, (and who was featured in The Omnivore's Dilemma) is also in the film. While I didn't get a chance to visit his farm, I recently was fortunate enough to eat some of his products (see next post).

Here's a preview of the film (not the official trailer):
