Informative Documentaries List

Here is a list of movies that helped form some of the opinions we have regarding food, the environment,
and modern life in general.  All movies can be view for free except Food Inc., which is one of the best out there.  If you are interested in this movie let me know and I will let you borrow our copy.
  • Food Inc. - In Food, Inc., filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our nation's food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that has been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government's regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Our nation's food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. We have bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, herbicide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won't go bad, but we also have new strains of E. coli—the harmful bacteria that causes illness for an estimated 73,000 Americans annually. We are riddled with widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults.

  • Super Size Me -Documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock puts his health on the line in this examination of the food industry.

  • The Future of Food -The Future Of Food offers an in-depth investigation into the disturbing truth behind engineered foods that have quietly filled U.S. grocery store shelves for the past decade.

  • King Corn - King Corn is a fun and crusading journey into the digestive tract of our fast food nation where one ultra-industrial, pesticide-laden, heavily-subsidized commodity dominates the food pyramid from top to bottom - corn

  • Tapped - The high cost -- to both the environment and our health -- of bottled water is the subject of this documentary that enlists activists, environmentalists, community leaders and others to expose the dark side of the bottled water industry.
  • Les Stroud's Off the Grid  Les Stroud & family document their struggles and triumphs while renovating an old outback farm to live off the grid
