Food Beware

Jaud, Jean-Paul
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. OFFICIAL SELECTION - Berlin Film Festival. OFFICIAL SELECTION - Montreal Festival of New Cinema. "Food Beware' takes a pragmatic, health-based approach that’s a refreshing change from the moral and high-cultural preening that sometimes enter this debate in America...it's hard not to be charmed." - Mike Hale, The New York Times "Informative and entertaining! A blueprint that others might follow to bring organic, healthy and socially responsible food production and preparation to their communities." - Jennifer Merin, About.com Guide to Documentaries.
