King Corn Premiere

KING CORN, the film, opens in NYC
Friday Oct. 12, Cinema Village, 22 East 12th St.

King Corn is a feature documentary about two friends, one acre of corn, and the subsidized crop that drives our fast-food nation. In King Corn, Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis, best friends from college on the east coast, move to the heartland to learn where their food comes from. With the help of friendly neighbors, genetically modified seeds, and powerful herbicides, they plant and grow a bumper crop of America's most-productive, most-subsidized grain on one acre of Iowa soil. But when they try to follow their pile of corn into the food system, what they find raises troubling questions about how we eat-and how we farm.

Corn always shows up in your duky. But nothing smells worse than a green cape after you have been sweating in it picketing Exxon Mobile for 10 hours straight. I am proud of you superheroes! Go Alternative lifestyle super Chicks! You are proving that young women and their domestic partners can tackle any issue, no matter how embarrassing it is to look ridiculous in the process.
