When Food, Inc. was released 10 years ago the film not only sparked a nationwide conversation about the way people look at the food they eat, it revolutionized the way they eat and think about eating. It deconstructed the corporate food industry in America, exposing the truths behind a global commerce and ushering in an era of accountability. Upon its release, Variety proclaimed: Food, Inc. “does for the supermarket what Jaws did for the beach.”
Directed by Robert Kenner. Produced by Kenner, Elise Pearlstein.

Academy Award nominee: Best Documentary Feature (Kenner, Pearlstein)
