Watch an interview with farmer and prominent food advocate Joel Salatin at the 2009 Full Frame Film Festival in Durham, N.C., where Robert Kenner’s documentary, Food, Inc., was screened and featured Salatin’s sustainable practices at his Ployface Farm in Virginia.

Ultimately, how a society raises and distributes its food is the clearest manifestation of that culture’s values, a point upon which Salatin reflected in the film, igniting the packed theater into roaring applause during last week’s screening:

“A culture that just views a pig as a pile of protoplasmic, inanimate structure to be manipulated by whatever creative design the human can foist on that critter will probably view individuals within its community and other cultures within the community of nations with the same type of distain and disrespect and controlling-type mentality.”
