You'll Become An Expert On: Corn
Corn is at the center of the industrialization of American food. This might not sound like too exciting a starting point, but filmmakers Aaron Woolf, Ian Cheney, and Curt Ellis managed to make an entertaining and informative film out of the seemingly dull subject matter.
The narrative revolves around Cheney and Ellis moving to Iowa to farm an acre of corn while informing the audience of the agricultural philosophies that have resulted in huge, corporate corn surpluses.
For those of you feeling a bit high and mighty, you're in luck. It'll be easy for you to bash your friends about corn, as it's in most of what we eat. Good luck cutting it out of your diet, though, especially if you don't have tons of money to blow. Better to just bitch and moan.
