The Future of Food, 2004 -- NetFlix says: "Before compiling your next grocery list, you might want to watch this eye-opening documentary, which sheds light on a shadowy relationship between agriculture, big business and government. By examining the effects of biotechnology on the nation's smallest farmers, director Deborah Koons Garcia reveals the unappetizing truth about genetically modified foods: You could unknowingly be serving them for dinner."

Super Size Me, 2004 -- NetFlix says: "On the heels of recent lawsuits against McDonald's, director Morgan Spurlock takes a hilarious and often terrifying look at the effects of fast food on the human body. For one month, Spurlock eats nothing but McDonald's food, ordering everything on the menu at least once and "super-sizing" his order if asked. With obesity on the rise, Spurlock's film begs the question: Where does personal responsibility end and corporate responsibility begin?"

Food for the Ancestors, 1999 -- NetFlix says: "Mexico's beautiful and mysterious Days of the Dead festival honors ancestors and deceased loved ones in a somber celebration, filled with music, costumes and plenty of mouthwatering food. Set in Puebla, one of the great culinary centers of Mexico, this delectable documentary takes in the festival while nibbling on treasured national dishes such as mole poblano, as well as such ancient delicacies as chapulines or grasshoppers."

The Meaning of Food, 2005 -- NetFlix says: "So many cultural and religious celebrations center on food, but how did this come to be? Discover the rich and varied history of American dining in this three-episode series that has filmmakers sitting at the table with guests from across the country who bring to the discussion opinions and experiences informed by their own cultural expectations. What results is a fascinating documentary that leaves viewers with (pun intended!) much to digest."
