Enormously Disturbing

This movie was so disturbing, in such a fantastic way.
King Corn is a feature documentary about two friends, one acre of corn, and the subsidized crop that drives our fast food nation. in King Corn, Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis, best friends from college on the east coast, move to the heartland to learn where their food comes form. With the help of friendly neighbors, genetically modified sees, nitrogen fertilizers, 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 theri pile of corn into the food system, what they find raises troubling questions about how we eat - and how we farm.

This film will make you want to open your eyes to the food that we are eating.
