Food, Inc. in Columbus

leave a comment »

A new movie about agribusiness called Food, Inc. has been the buzz of the foodie world this past week. It focuses on the extent to which a small number of corporations have dominated the food production industry in America, to the detriment of farmers, consumers, and the environment. It was released on the coasts and was so successful that it has now been released throughout the rest of the country.

Well, most of the rest of the country.

You can read about it here, in the Columbus Dispatch. You can watch the trailer here. But at least according to movietickets.com, you won’t be seeing it in the Columbus area soon.

Perhaps that’ll change. We hope so. After all, the goal of Slow Food is to improve the American food system for everyone, and this movie is about what the American food system is really like.

At least, that’s what we’re told.

If you’d like to see Food, Inc. in a theater near you, drop a line to booking@magpictures.com and let them know.

Update: When I did this, a nice guy named Neal wrote back to me and told me that it would be opening at the Drexel East in Bexley on July 17 — almost one week after PolyCultures at Studio 35! We’ll look forward to seeing it!

Update to the update: Preview the night before, on the evening of the 16th—read about the details here.
