Food on Film Week at The Belcourt 

What's Eating You?

What's Eating You?
Through next Thursday, The Belcourt is out to whet the appetites of foodie filmgoers with four new food-themed documentaries. First up is Food, Inc., Robert Kenner's critically-acclaimed look at our country's shockingly large corporate food (infra)structure, replete with the requisite slaughterhouse shots. Tonight's showing also features an opening-night panel discussion of local food folk, moderated by the Scene's own Carrington Fox. Whole Foods, who's sponsoring the whole thing and who, additionally, is a corporation (albeit a socially responsible one) is providing hors d'oeuvres. On tap for Saturday is an "All American" food information fair, featuring many local growers, wholesalers and retailers. Sunday and Monday you can catch The End of the Line, a look at the world's rapidly fishtailing sustainable seafood industry. Tuesday and Wednesday turn up the heat with Pressure Cooker, an in-depth look at Philadelphia's Wilma Stephenson, who selflessly lends culinary credibility to the most unlikely of understudies. The Garden, a harrowing and heartwarming look at South Central Los Angeles' community garden, closes the week.
Mondays-Sundays. Starts: June 26. Continues through July 2, 2009
