animation from King Corn documentary
Michael Pollan in King Corn

King Corn (2007) covers the farm-to-plate problems of American food from the standpoint of two young men, Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis, who cultivate a mini-farm in Greene, Iowa. The film shows their year growing a one acre corn crop, interwoven with serious questions about subsidies, chemicals, and by-products of corn. Animated sequences and Michael Pollan (above), among other elements, add to the well-told story.
