Corn: the movie

Corn has a history with narrative in the US, from the Pre-Columbian to
contemporary horror films to conspiracy theories. The development of GM
corn by companies like Monsanto is adding a whole other layer to the
ongoing narrative of corn, as reports about the spread of GM corn DNA
in the href=""
target=_blank>southern states of Mexico
and the href=""
target=_blank>contamination of food products
by corn not cleared
for human consumption become more and more documented. href="" target=_blank>"Corn," a
new film by Sundance winner Dave Silver
is a feature length
suspenseful tale of an experimental corn crop and its horrific
consequences on a local community.
