Oscar Watch: Kenner Talks Food Inc.

Can a documentary change the world? Sundance entry An Inconvenient Truth, which won the 2006 documentary Oscar, certainly did. So did Super-Size Me. And so has Food Inc., Robert Kenner's probe of America's food industry. Initially inspired by Eric Schlosser's bestselling expose Fast Food Nation, Food Inc. has grossed $4.4 million, won the Gotham award for best documentary, is nominated for an Indie Spirit Award, and is considered a front-runner for this year's documentary Oscar. It's a must-see, and it's not a spinach-movie. Kenner makes it a fun, compelling watch, even as he shows us more than we may want to know. The movie is available on DVD and on Amazon, iTunes and Netflix and will air on POV April 21st at 9 pm.

My Flip Cam conversation with Kenner is in three parts. Part One: Where food comes from, building awareness, and struggles with access to power players.

Part Two: Corporate power, WalMart cooperates, changes in the food industry brought by the film, and withholding info from consumers.

Part Three: Government change in the offing, cheap food is expensive and damages the environment, the food industry's Ponzi scheme, and the power of Oscar.
