Food Inc. (2009)

Title : Food Inc.
Director : Robert Kenner
Genre : Documentary
Cast : Michael Pollan, Eric Schlosser
See : Trailer

Synopsis :
The current method of raw food production is largely a response to the growth of the fast food industry since the 1950s. The production of food overall has more drastically changed since that time than the several thousand years prior. Controlled primarily by a handful of multinational corporations, the global food production business - with an emphasis on the business - has as its unwritten goals production of large quantities of food at low direct inputs (most often subsidized) resulting in enormous profits, which in turn results in greater control of the global supply of food sources within these few companies. Health and safety (of the food itself, of the animals produced themselves, of the workers on the assembly lines, and of the consumers actually eating the food) are often overlooked by the companies, and are often overlooked by government in an effort to provide cheap food regardless of these negative consequences. Many of the changes are based on advancements in science and technology, but often have negative side effects. The answer that the companies have come up with is to throw more science at the problems to bandage the issues but not the root causes. The global food supply may be in crisis with lack of biodiversity, but can be changed on the demand side of the equation.

The Soviet Story (2008)

Title : The Soviet Story
Director : Edvins Snore
Genre : Documentary | History | War
Cast : Andre Brie,Vladimir Bukovsky,Norman Davies
See : Trailer

Synopsis :
Soviet Story tells the untold facts of Soviet Union. Film evokes the similarity between Soviet Union and Nazi Germany and the secret friendship that took millions of Ukrainian lives during the famine - Holodomor, as all the food resources were taken away from Ukraine to be exported to Nazi Germany. This documentary will also provide the Western world with a close look into Stalin's ruled country without
any liberty of thought. Any opposition led to Gulag which can be considered an ancestor of Nazi Concentration camps and where numerous medical experiments were carried out. Film contains interviews with witnesses and historians and politicians as well as it has some archive documents and photographs, never been brought to public and taken by Hitler's personal photograph Heinrich Hoffmann.

Quite surprising is the comparison of the propaganda posters of both countries, which appears to be quasi identical.
