King Corn at Farm Film Feast

Two recent college grads discover where America's food comes from when they plant a single acre of corn and follow it from the seed to the dinner plate.

With the help of government subsidies, genetically modified seeds, and powerful herbicides, America's most-subsidized crop becomes the staple of its cheapest — and most troubling — foods.

King Corn and Big River (77 mins total), will be shown Wednesday, March 10th at 8:00 to kick off the Farm Film Feast Program. Join director Aaron Woolf and actors Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis at Paresky Auditorium, Williams College, Williamstown, MA. for this free event. Q&A and dessert follow.
