The Delicious Revolution Films: King Corn

Film # 3 in The Delicious Revolution Film Series
Saturday, May 7 at 6 pm, Join us for a free screening of King Corn at the Walnut Creek Public Library, 1644 N. Broadway, Walnut Creek.

In KING CORN , recent college graduates Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis leave the east coast for rural Iowa, where they decide to grow an acre of the nation’s most powerful crop. The filmmakers arrive in the Midwest enthusiastic about their new endeavor. For their farm-to-be, they choose a tiny town in Floyd, County, Iowa—a place that, coincidentally, both Ian and Curt’s great-grandfathers called home three generations ago. They lease an acre of land from a skeptical landlord, fill out a pile of paperwork to sign up for subsidies and discover the U.S. government will pay them 28 dollars for their acre.
