You Are What You EatDVD - 2008
Fueled by curiosity and a dash of naiveté, college buddies Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis return to their ancestral home of Greene, Iowa, to find out how the modest corn kernel conquered America. With the help of real farmers, powerful fertilizer, government aid, and genetically modified seeds, the friends manage to grow one acre of corn. Along the way, they unlock the hidden truths about America's modern food system.

Don Clikeman, farmer: "We aren't growing quality... We're growing crap! Poorest quality crap the world's ever seen -- we're growing it today." Ian Cheney: "You don't eat the corn that you grow." Elna Clikeman: "No... Not saying that I might not grind up a little bit for some corn meal, but I... basically don't." Don Clikeman: "I don't grow, necessarily grow, my corn for food. I don't care what's done with it! I'm selling it! That's the bottom line."
Michael Pollan, University of California: "All that cheap... surplus corn goes somewhere, and in fact, a lot of it is going onto our bodies."
