King Corn

King Corn is a feature documentary 

about two friends, one acre of corn, 

and the subsidized crop that drives 

our fast-food nation. 

In the film, Ian Cheney and Curt 

Ellis, best friends from college on 

the east coast, move to the 

heartland to learn where their food comes from. With the 

help of friendly neighbors, genetically modified seeds, and 

powerful herbicides, they plant and grow a bumper crop of 

America's most-productive, most-subsidized grain on one 

acre of Iowa soil. But when they try to follow their pile of 

corn into the food system, what they find raises troubling

 questions about how we eat—and how we farm.
