The Bissell Symposium will present two events surrounding the documentary film “King Corn,” a feature documentary about two friends, one acre of corn, and the subsidized crop that drives our fast-food nation.
At 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 12 in Colton 120, the documentary will be shown, followed by a question-and-answer session with documentary creator Curt Ellis. At noon on Tuesday, Nov. 13, in East Hall Forum, Ellis will give a presentation.
Ellis is a creator of the hit documentaries King Corn, The Greening of Southie, Big River and Truck Farm. He is co-founder of the national service organization FoodCorps, and a passionate campaigner for building a world in which service, sustainability and health are celebrated.
