Originally released in 2010 in the UK the America film, Food, Inc. is still very much a relevant film today. Glengall Wharf Garden is having an outdoor screening on Sunday 4 September of Robert Kenner’s film, where he explores the US food industry’s highly mechanized underbelly that has been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of the government’s regulatory agencies. The food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, and the livelihood of the American farmer. In creating the biggest-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, insecticide-resistant soybean seeds, new strains of E.coli have developed, responsible for the illness of an estimated 73,000 Americans annually. Food, Inc. reveals surprising and often shocking truths about what we eat, how it’s produced, and what the future could look like if nothing is done to change the way we produce our food.

This is an outdoor event so bring warm clothes. It is a FREE event, so no booking is needed. Arrive early to secure a space.

About The Venue:
