Food, Inc. (2010)

Lifts the veil on our nation's food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that's been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government's regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Reveals surprising — and often shocking truths — about what we eat, how it's produced, who we have become as a nation and where we are going from here. www.pbs.org/pov/foodinc/credits.php

The Future of Food  (Two Disc set, 2005).

Offers in-depth investigation into the disturbing truth behind the unlabeled, patented, genetically engineered foods that have quietly filled grocery store shelves for the past decade. Examines the complex web of market and political forces that are changing what we eat as huge multinational corporations seek to control the world’s food system.  This award-winning film also explores alternatives to large-scale industrial agriculture as real solutions to the farm crisis. www.thefutureoffood.com.

It'll teach you something, it'll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever. www.thestoryofstuff.com. 20 minutes. Award winning.
