King Corn at the Bijou December 4, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — caroline@LFC @ 4:50 pm

Don’t miss your chance to catch the new documentary “King Corn” at the Bijou this week; the film will run there through December 6th.

According to the movie’s website, “‘King Corn’ is a feature documentary about two friends, one acre of corn, and the subsidized crop that drives our fast food nation.” The film has received rave reviews in the New York Times and Salon, among other news outlets.  The Boston Globe went so far as to argue that “‘King Corn’ ought to be required viewing by anyone planning to visit a supermarket, fast food joint or their own refrigerator.  Funny, wise and sad, it suggests that being well-fed has nothing to do with begin well-nourished.”  I heard its creators, Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis, on NPR last weekend and the movie promises to deliver on the two-guys-meet-agribusiness-and-hilarity-and-profundity-ensue formula!

Check the The Bijou Theater for schedule.
