Food Inc, The Movie in Brisbane

The movie Food Inc is in limited release in Australia and was not scheduled to be shown in Brisbane.
However, many folks from the local transition movement have successfully lobbied to have it shown.
This movie received 4 1/2 stars from Margaret Pomeranz and 4 stars from David Stratton on ABC's At The Movies.
It would be wonderful to have a full house on the opening night, so put June 24th in your diary to be at the Palace Centro.

There is a growing concern in the general population about the quality of our food and the viability of our farmers. This movie provides a firm basis for those concerns.

Says Margaret Pomeranz in her review
"It's a shocking indictment of an industry which has been taken over by greedy, litigious, multi-national corporations who not only want to put small farmers and food suppliers out of business, they want to keep quiet about the dangerous practices they use in the slaughtering of animals for food and other farming practices"

See you at the movies....
