Kristin Canty, director of the documentary “Farmageddon,” talks about the ongoing problems with our nation’s food supply, and argues that the U.S. government actively colludes with agri-businesses to keep our food unsafe. The film shows family farms that were raided by the government, exposing what Canty calls the covert war on American farmers and co-ops that supply fresh, unprocessed foods to consumers. She’s joined by Gary Cox, General Counsel, Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund, and Linda Failace, owner of Three Shephard’s Cheese, an artisanal cheese making business in Mad River Valley, Vermont, who are both featured in the documentary. “Farmageddon” opens July 8 at Cinema Village.
