Review of Green Wednesdays by Nice and Serious
Nice and Serious is the UK’s leading environmental production company, screening environmentally related feature films on Wednesday evenings. I checked out their inaugural screening Food Inc. Well run event with thought provoking speeches and informal discussions afterwards.

There’s a lot of talk about animal cruelty in Food Inc. Perhaps another animal to consider is the 'elephant in the room' that few people talk about: global overpopulation, and therefore over demand of food! Not an easy issue to find a solution for, but that doesn't mean we ignore it. Something to be acknowledged in future films along these lines.
