The MSU Leadership Institute will show the documentary "King Corn" at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 7, in the Procrastinator Theater.

With the help of friendly neighbors, genetically modified seeds, and powerful herbicides, Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis plant and grow a bumper crop of America's most-productive, most-subsidized grain on one acre of Iowa soil. But when they try to follow their pile of corn into the food system, what they find raises questions about how we eat- and how we farm. The Washington Post says, ("King Corn") should be required viewing before going into a supermarket, McDonald's, or your very own refrigerator."
