Our next movie features our 3rd "Big Issue" movie Food, Inc. For most of us, the ideal meal is fast, cheap, and tasty. Food, Inc. examines the costs of putting value and convenience over nutrition and environmental impact. Director Robert Kenner explores the subject from all angles as he takes his camera into slaughterhouses and factory farms where chickens grow too fast to walk properly, cows eat feed pumped with toxic chemicals, and illegal immigrants risk life and limb to bring these products to market at an affordable cost. Food, Inc. delivers and gives an unflattering look inside America's corporate controlled food industry.
Food, Inc. lifts the veil on our nation's food industry, exposing how our nation's food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, thelivelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. Food, Inc. reveals surprising and often shocking truths about what we eat, how it's produced and who we have become as a nation.

It offered a great opportunity to rethink about food industry seriously. If you want to discuss social issues with other people, this group would be a great option. :) Even I had a little matter of the traveling time though, it was worth it. oh, and I think it'd be nicer if we might have a cup of tea somewhere after film!
This Meetup group are for those who are interested in film, photography and of course, watching movies, Hallyuwood movies in particular.
What's Hallyuwood? Hallyuwood (한류우드) is the informal term to describe Asian films in, but not limited to, South Korea. As action superstar Jackie Chan once said: "America has its Hollywood, India has its Bollywood and now with the emergence of Hallyuwood, I hope to see the integration of Asian pop culture." ^^
Whether your just a casual movie goer or a budding actor/director or an expert photographer, this is an informal Meetup where peoplecan chat, exchange languages/cultures, talk about film, take photographs, exchange DVDs, oh and of course, watch a movie! We hope this will be a fun and social environment with the chance to make new friends and share their interest in Hallyuwood movies, film and photography!
