Food, Inc. 2

Documentary Rated: NR 94 min

Food, Inc. 2 is a timely and urgent follow-up to the Oscar-nominated documentary from directors Robert Kenner and Melissa Robledo. In the sequel, Kenner and Robledo reunite with investigative authors Michael Pollan (The Omnivore’s Dilemma) and Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation) to take a fresh look at our vulnerable food system. The 2008 groundbreaking first film ignited a cultural conversation about the multinational corporations that control our food system at enormous cost to our planet, workforce, and health. This “back for seconds” return to the issue reveals how corporate consolidation has gone unchecked by our government, leaving us with a highly efficient yet shockingly vulnerable food system designed solely for increasing profits. There is hope, and the documentary introduces innovative farmers, food producers, workers’ rights activists, and prominent legislators, such as U.S. Senators Cory Booker and Jon Tester, who are facing these companies head-on and fighting to create a more sustainable future. A New York Times Critics’ Pick.
