Yep, we're having a special screening at the college next week. I'm excited because lauren Ornelas from the Food Empowerment Project will be a guest speaker.

I saw it a few weeks ago when it was at our local indie theatre. I liked it, I think that if you have heart disease or are afraid of chronic sad disease, it's very compelling. The profiles are great. I especially liked the councilman from Chicago, whose memorable line was something to effect of erectile dysfunction should be a sign than there is something chronically wrong with your cardiovascular health, and you had better take better care of yourself.

It has a strong health message and has been influential on a lot of people. It doesn't ignore the ethical message, either, which is great.

I have no complaints against it at all.
