COMMENT VISIONNER CE FILM ?

Que savons-nous des aliments que nous mangeons tous les jours ? Ce documentaire lève le voile sur les méthodes de production irresponsables de l’industrie alimentaire américaine. Afin de maintenir des profits conséquents, les industriels ne se contentent pas de compromettre le gagne-pain de nombreux agriculteurs et d’ouvriers agricoles mais ils mettent aussi en danger la santé des consommateurs. Le film est raconté par Michael Pollan et Eric Schlosser, deux critiques de longue date du système agro-industriel.

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, the film 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.
