King Corn documentary playing Denver, one night only

January 22nd, 2008


So I saw this documentary in Portland back in November, and it was great. It was all about corn farmers in the United States and the last thirty or forty years of the corn industry — sounds like a real snoozer, right? It’s not. It explains obesity, diabetes, the current state of vending machines, 7-11s, McDonalds, the Iraq War, and Canada. Not those last two, and maybe not the first one, but most everything else.

Anyway, it’s playing in Denver this Thursday, January 24th. Starz Film Center. $8.75. If you’re around, I wholeheartedly recommend it. Buy tickets here. King Corn website here. Not in Denver? Buy the DVD here. Yeah.
