The Story of Food: Food Beware (DVD)

Posted 3/27/2017 11:59am by Dennis Skoworodko.

We first watched this film in Jan 2014, and have watched it a few times since then.  

Food Beware - The French Organic Revolution  

(French with English subtitles, 2008)  

Available at the Saskatoon Public Library, iTunes, and the movie’s own web site (http://firstrunfeatures.com/foodbewaredvd.html).    

 

Synopsis

For the first time ever, our children are growing up less healthy than we are. As the rate of cancer, infertility and other illnesses linked to environmental factors climbs ever upward each year, we must ask ourselves: why is this happening?

Food Beware begins with a visit to a small village in France, where the town's mayor has decided to make the school lunch menu organic and locally grown. It then talks to a wide variety of people with differing perspectives to find common ground - children, parents, teachers, health care workers, farmers, elected officials, scientists, researchers and the victims of illnesses themselves. Revealed in these moving and often surprising conversations are the abuses of the food industry, the competing interests of agrobusiness and public health, the challenges and rewards of safe food production, and the practical solutions that we can all take part in. Food Beware is food for thought - and a blueprint for a growing revolution.

Featuring original music by Oscar-winner Gabriel Yared.
