Double Feature About Food at the Tivoli

Just wanted to let everyone know that there will be a double feature of ‘Big River’ and ‘King Corn’ next Thursday, January 21 at the Tivoli in University City. Following up on their Peabody winning documentary, the ‘King Corn’ boys are back. For ‘Big River’, best friends Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis have returned to Iowa with a new mission: to investigate the environmental impact their acre of corn has sent to the people and places downstream.

The Missouri Coalition for the Environment, where I work, is presenting these two short films along with a panel discussion about the effects of corporate agriculture on our environment and health and ways in which local organizations can work to mitigate these problems.

Hope to see you there,
Brian DeSmet
