'King Corn' Documentary to be Screened... Join the Nicollet County Historical Society and partners St. Peter Food Co-Op, Gustavus Adolphus Department of English, Renewing the Countryside, and the St. Peter United Methodist Fellowship in welcoming filmmaker Ian Cheney to the Treaty Site History Center (1851 N. Minnesota Ave., St. Peter) on Oct. 10 to screen his critically-acclaimed film, King Corn. This absolutely free event is a very special opportunity to meet a heralded young filmmaker and see his important movie. King Corn is a feature documentary about two friends, one acre of corn, and the subsidized crop that drives our fast-food nation. In King Corn, 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. Filmmaker Cheney will be at the Treaty Site History Center Friday, Oct. 10, at 6:30 p.m. to screen the film and answer questions. For more information, call Jessica Brockberg at 507-934-2160.
