World Centric features the film KING CORN and invites you to join speaker Wolfram Alderson, the Executive Director of Collective Roots. Wolfram carries over 30 years of experience in social services with an emphasis on the environment, urban farming and horticultural therapy.

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, 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. (88 mins, 2007)
