The Future of Food

The Future of Food is a documentary film that I first heard about when the producer appeared on an NPR interview last summer. Recently, I found the film on Snag Films and watched it in chunks over the course of a few days. The film provides an interesting look at consumption, how we got to our current rate of consumption, and where we are headed. Despite some fairly obvious bias, the film could be used as part of a lesson about global economics and global development.
The film is embedded below.
