Continuing this week-long festival, Thursday, April 9 is all about King Corn, a documentary about two friends, their acre of corn, and the fast-food world that relies heavily on the subsidized crop. You might not eat corn on the cob that often, but if you consume junk food, it's in your system. Amber waves of grain, indeed. All films are followed or preceded by panel talks with experts.
