Free Screening - Green Movie Night - "King Corn" - Fort Worth
This will be a free screening of the documentary King Corn at Westside Unitarian Universalist Church in Fort Worth. (The following is taken from the website of the documentary King Corn)
King Corn is a Peabody-winning feature documentary about two friends, one acre of corn, and the subsidized crop that drives our fast-food nation. In the film, 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.
This event is free and open to the public. Please invite your friends, neighbors and colleagues. Suitable for children ages 9-10+. Popcorn will be served.
