And the Nominees Are…

Congratulations to both Food, Inc. and The Cove on their Academy Award nominations for Best Documentary Feature!  Such widespread release and coverage of both of these films has been really important in spreading information on topics that the general public is either unaware of or avoids.  Topics like the problems with our animal agriculture business, over fishing, pollution, animal rights and governmental control of the food we eat.  No matter which film wins (there are three others in the category, as well), these nominations will ensure even more people will see these films and hear what they have to say.

I myself have not been able to see Food, Inc. yet (although I have heard all about it), but I recently saw The Cove at Tribeca Cinemas and found it shocking and moving.  I was on the verge of tears multiple times.  The director was at the screening and he is a first time filmmaker!  The whole process they went through just to make the film was absolutely extraordinary.  I highly recommend seeing this movie.
