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. Written and directed by Aaron Woolf www.kingcorn.net.

 

Big River presents the “next step”: where do the chemicals go that farmers use to grow all that corn? Our plan for the evening is to screen both short films, and then have a discussion with the director and writer, Aaron Woolf.

Mark Bowden is the author of thirteen books, including the New York Times bestseller Black Hawk Down. He will be in conversation with Dan Fesperman, an award winning author and former foreign correspondent for the Baltimore Sun. His latest novel is Safe Houses. For forty years the mystery of what happened to the Lyons sisters, aged 10 and 12, who disappeared in 1975 from the Wheaton Plaza shopping mall in suburban Washington, D.C, haunted an entire community, including journalist Mark Bowden, who covered the story as a cub reporter. With The Last Stone, he now returns to the crime to cover the extraordinary effort by authorities to bring their kidnapper to justice and to try to answer the question he could never shake, “Who would commit such a crime? And, why?” Click here for more details.
