King Corn (the movie) is opening in New York today, but you can read about it on the blog site of one of its makers, Curt Ellis. Enjoy!
I went to KingCorn.net and called to get the movie to theaters in Upstate NY. The gentleman chatted with me for a while about the movie and the delays of the Farm Bill in the Senate. This movie may be seen by many people who could let their Senators know their opinions on the matter prior to passage of this bill in the Senate.
**I was directed to and did contact my local cinemas (especially those who frequently play independent films) to request them to play King Corn.**
Hopefully I’ll be seeing it soon!
I’m doing a Behind the Plate interview from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Foodstand, 115 5th Ave (between 18th and 19th), 6th floor. This is in partnership with the NYC Food Policy Center and Sweetgreen. Information about tickets is here.
