In "Food, Inc.," filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our nation's food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that's been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government's regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Our nation's food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. We have bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, insecticide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won't go bad, but we also have new strains of e coli--the harmful bacteria that cause illness for an estimated 73,000 Americans annually. We are riddled with widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults Featuring interviews with such experts as Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation), Michael Pollan (The Omnivore's Dilemma) along with forward thinking social entrepreneurs like Stonyfield Farms' Gary Hirschberg and Polyface Farms' Joe Salatin, "Food, Inc." reveals surprising--and often shocking truths--about what we eat, how it's produced, who we have become as a nation and where we are going from here.

    Dans un univers extraordinaire vit un jeune homme ordinaire, Adam, qui tente de joindre les deux bouts dans un monde détruit par la guerre. Tout en luttant pour avancer dans la vie, il est hanté par le souvenir d’une belle jeune fille venant d’un monde d’abondance : Eden. Dans cet univers, son monde se trouve juste au-dessus de celui d’Adam - si près que lorsqu’il regarde vers le ciel, il peut voir ses villes étincelantes et ses champs fleuris. Mais cette proximité est trompeuse : l’entrée dans son monde est strictement interdite et la gravité de la planète d’Eden rend toute tentative extrêmement périlleuse.
