Robert Kenner's documentary film "Food, Inc." will open the 59th Berlin International Film Festival's Culinary Cinema programme as a Berlinale Special. The screening will take place February 8th at Friedrichstadtpalast and conclude with a discussion and a "true culinary treat." "Food" finds Kenner and the investigative protagonists Eric Schlosser and Michael Pollan exploring the depths of the food industry hidden from the consumer with the consent of governmental authorities. Following the presentation of "Food, Inc.," a panel discussion with director Kenner, Schlosser, Pollan, and German food experts will take place. To conclude the event, Berlin top chef Tim Raue will indulge guests in a "delicious culinary alternative to 'Food, Inc.'"
