Previous Interview with Robert Kenner
Robert Kenner's Food, Inc., is one of the top grossing theatrical documentaries of all time, selling nearly 500,000 DVDs. Food, Inc. received widespread critical acclaim, dozens of awards and accolades, including an Academy Award nomination, and has influenced current food policy decisions. Kenner received a Peabody and an Emmy for Two Days in October, depicting simultaneous events in 1967: a deadly Vietcong ambush and a violent campus protest. He was co-filmmaker with Richard Pearce on The Road to Memphis for the Martin Scorsese series, The Blues. Newsweek called The Road to Memphis "as fine a film ever made about American music" and "the unadulterated gem of the Scorsese Series." Kenner has directed numerous specials for National Geographic and PBS's American Experience series, as well as award winning commercials and corporate films for a wide range of clients. Kenner recently completed When Strangers Click that premiered for HBO. He is currently creating a series of web and TV spots about the unsustainability of our industrial food system.
