FOOD, INC. Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil off 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. Our nation's food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. We are riddled with widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults.

A panel discussion will follow the screening and will broadly focus on issues raised in the film, eating locally produced food, growing food, and indentifying and supporting local food resources. Panelists will include Bill Dawson, Growing Green Program Coordinator, Franklin Park Conservatory; Michael Jones, Executive Director Local Matters; Darren Malhame, partner, Northstar Café; Annerose Schaffrin, General Manager, Bexley Natural Market; and Warren Taylor, owner and fresh milk advocate, Snowville Creamery, Pomeroy, Ohio. Carol Goland, Executive Director, Ohio Ecological Food & Farm Association will be moderator. The audience is invited to see the film and stay to join in the discussion.

A Sense of Wonder
Rachel Carson’s love for the natural world and her fight to defend it

When pioneering environmentalist Rachel Carson published Silent Spring in 1962, the backlash from her critics thrust her into the center of a political maelstrom. Despite her love of privacy, Carson’s convictions and her foresight regarding the risks posed by chemical pesticides forced her into a very public and controversial role. The film is an intimate and poignant reflection of Carson's life as she emerges as America's most successful advocate for the natural world. Sponsored by the Free Press, Sierra Club, Central Ohio Green Education Fund, and Drexel Theater.
