Cinema Politica

Cinema Politica’s first showing is King Corn, which follows two brothers as they farm an acre of corn. In the process they, and we, learn about the ramifications of the increasing industrialization of corn growing in America. Introducing the film will be Don Genova, the coordinator of the group “Slow Food.” Don Genova writes food columns for the CBC, and has written/produced a film called Islands on the Edge which is about food security on Vancouver Island. He’ll be showing clips of that film on Wednesday. You can read more about him and listen to his podcasts at his website, Pacific Palate.

Wednesday, September 23, 7:00 pm. Camosun College, Young 216.
