Let’s get together for an educational movie about our nation’s food industry. After the flick, those that are interested can head to Taco Diner for food and conversation.
In Food, Inc., filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our nation’s food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that has been hidden from the American consumer. Featuring interviews with such experts as Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation), Michael Pollan (The Omnivore’s Dilemma, In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto) along with forward thinking social entrepreneurs like Stonyfield’s Gary Hirshberg and Polyface Farms’ Joel 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.
Meet inside downstairs lobby of Magnolia Theater at 3:45 pm (MOVIE STARTS at 4:10pm)
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or the Pingg invitation by noon on 6/28.
Location: West Village / 3699 McKinney Avenue, Suite 100 / Dallas, TX 75204 / (214) 764-9106
