With Jamie Oliver zipping across the U.S. to reform school lunches and American obesity getting more press than ever, food has been making newspaper headlines. Tomorrow night, Robert Kenner's sobering documentary, Food, Inc. will air on PBS along with Notes on Milk, a short documentary following the history of America's favorite drink. Author and food guru Michael Pollan and Fast Food Nation's Eric Schlosser narrate the disturbing realities of the American food industry. The documentary, which considers E. coli, corporate farming and food libel laws, will probably turn more than a few stomachs and have viewers rethinking the contents of their grocery list.
Trailer after the jump.
Food Inc. Television Premiere, airing on PBS, Wednesday, April 21, 9 p.m.
