Colour me thrilled! The documentary Food, Inc. will be showing in Winnipeg! I first heard about this movie before it opened in the States, but when I scanned their list of dates there were no Canadian dates listed. I wasn’t too surprised, since it is an American movie about the American food industry, but still…
Check out the trailer:
The Canadian food system is very similar to the American system, but they aren’t identical. The Canadian system does some things better, and some things worse. I would also warn against taking everything in this documentary as gospel; it’s quite easy to take a truth and twist it to your own view.
Anyway, I am very excited that this movie is finally coming to Winnipeg. It will be showing at Cinematheque on the following days:
* Fri Sep 18, 2009 at 7:00 PM
* Sat Sep 19, 2009 at 7:00 PM
* Sun Sep 20, 2009 at 2:00 PM
* Wed Sep 23, 2009 at 9:30 PM
* Thu Sep 24, 2009 at 9:00 PM
If you’re at all interested in where the food in your supermarket comes from, how it was made and who was involved in its creation, I encourage you to take in this movie.
