Food Inc. gets Oscar nod, but Salatin prefers Fresh
Food Inc., which features local farmer and 2009 Hook Person of the Year Joel Salatin, was recently nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary. Salatin, however, prefers Fresh, another popular food documentary he appeared in last year.
“Fresh was more positive, and the cinematography better," Salatin told the Hook. “They came for two-day stretches at different times of the year. The Food Inc. folks came in and did everything in one day. Food Inc. is more in your face, makes you not want to eat anything.”
