Sept 10 FFE Eco-Film “Food, Inc. 2” via Zoom

View & discuss the film “Food, Inc. 2” with us!
The Film:

Register here today to join the Sisters and other Franciscans For Earth on Tuesday, September 10, 2024, at 6:30 pm Central via Zoom, for a free screening of the film “Food, Inc. 2.”

As the name suggests, Magnolia Pictures’ Food, Inc. 2, is the 2024 sequel to the 2008 Oscar®-nominated film (and one of our former FFE Eco-Series documentaries) Food, Inc. According to www.rocofilms.com, the original groundbreaking documentary ignited a conversation about the multinational corporations that control food systems at enormous cost to our planet, workforce, and health. Food, Inc. 2 comes “back for seconds” to reveal how corporate consolidation has gone unchecked by our government. An efficient, yet shockingly vulnerable food system now exists, dedicated only to increasing profits. This consolidated power leads to exploited laborers, a degraded environment, less healthy food, and a dysfunctional supply chain.

According to the film’s participant site, a handfull of companies control almost every category of food and exert their power over our government, the workforce and the consumer:

  • 85% of beef processing is controlled by 4 companies
  • 83% of cold cereal industry is dominated by 3 companies
  • 70% of the carbonated soft drink market is controlled by 2 companies
  • 80% of the baby formula market is controlled by 2 companies

Seeking solutions, the film introduces innovative farmers, food producers, workers’ rights activists, and prominent legislators such as U.S. Senators Cory Booker and Jon Tester, who are facing these companies head-on and fighting to create a more sustainable future.

Registration:

Upon registration, you will receive an email response that contains a Zoom link. Please save and flag/star the email response, so you can find that link to log in on the evening of September 10 at 6:15 pm. The presentation begins at 6:30, but we ask everyone to log in at 6:15 in case there are difficulties. We will try to send email reminders containing the link to Zoom registrants one day and one hour before the event. We have heard, however, that sometimes these do not go through. Also note, this film is longer than those we usually screen. Ensure that your screening device has ample power.
