Movie Summary

Director:
Christopher Taylor (I)
Released:
2011
Rating:
Not Available
When we walk into a supermarket, we assume that we have the widest possible choice of healthy foods. But in fact, over the course of the 20th century, our food system has been co-opted by corporate forces whose interests do not lie in providing the public with fresh, healthy and sustainably-produced food. Fortunately for America, an alternative emerged from the counter-culture of California in the late 1960's and early 1970's where a group of political anti-corporate protesters, led by Alice Waters, voiced their dissent by creating a food chain outside of the conventional system. The unintended result was the birth of a vital local-sustainable-organic food movement, which has brought back taste and a variety to our tables. The film is a fascinating look at how American agricultural policy and food culture developed in the 20th century, and how the California food movement rebelled against big agribusiness to launch the local organic food movement.
