Free USA Screenings - Food, Inc.

A few weeks back, Angel and I checked out Food, Inc., a documentary about America's food production, monetized agrarianism and our safety. Stunning, to say the least, the film explores how corporations dictate policy to US farmers—and turns them into feudal serfs along the way. More importantly, Food, Inc. urges us to connect the dots and demand to know where—and how—the food on our table was raised, harvested and processed; and whether it truly delivers the nutritional sustenance it promises.

In short, Food, Inc. is an important documentary to see.

Oddly enough, the burrito chain restaurant Chipotle (which is supposedly owned by McDonald's, largely a villain in the film) thinks so, too. In a rare tie-in that surprised me completely, the brand is sponsoring FREE screenings of Food, Inc. all across America this week. Though the majority of screenings will be held on Thursday, July 16th at 7:30 pm, some cities are variables and are holding viewings as early as this evening. Make sure you get in on it... the change in diet will surely come after.
