11 Best Food Documentaries on Netflix Streaming

11. King Corn

Site rank 3, IMDb rank 5, Overall Rank = 8
Directed by Aaron Woolf
Year: 2007

Ian Cheney and Curtis Ellis are best friends who decide to move to Iowa from Boston and grow corn in an effort to trace the food we eat back from our tables to its origins. The film explores how the government subsidies have transformed a traditional American family farm into a vast industrial complex that churns out more than 40% of world’s annual corn production. With some help from their neighbors and genetically engineered seeds, they managed to harvest corn from their one-acre plot and discover some unpleasant truths about what happens to it once it leaves the farm and enters the processing plants.
