Reel Food Screening & Discussion: King Corn

Jul 11, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

| FREE

In conjunction with BHS’s exhibition Hidden in Plain Sight: Portraits of Hunger in NYC, we are proud to present a series of films focused on issues of food justice and equity. We begin the series with Peabody Award-winning King Corn, which looks at how government subsidies and industrialization in corn growth have affected farming (and eating) in the United States. Introduction and post-screening discussion led by Aaron Woolf, the film’s director.
