Food, Inc Director says "It's not just about food, it's about our right to know" (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Robert Kenner's documentary about the industrialization of food got a plug from Oprah, was nominated for "Best Documentary" in this year's Academy Awards and has its PBS premier on April 21st.

He came to the Planet Forward studios to respond to questions posed by our members, including a fifth generation family farmer who's intimately aware of the big ag's impact on small farms. We also hear from one high school class that has watched the movie, which is being shown in schools around the country.

He heard our questions and he answers them in the webisode below.

What he says about science is not what you expect. He's not another alarmist who tells us the sky is falling. His solution is different--more open and more reasonable. Check it out:
