Minnesota Ag Connection - 11/05/2009

Following up on their Peabody winning documentary, the "King Corn" boys are back! Join filmmaker Curt Ellis, star of "King Corn," for the Minnesota premiere of "Big River." In their new documentary, Curt and Ian return to Iowa on a new mission: to investigate the environmental impact their acre of corn had on the people and places downstream.

The event begins at 7 p.m. with screening of King Corn, with Big River to premiere at 8 p.m. A discussion will follow the screenings at about 8:30 p.m. featuring filmmaker Curt Ellis and other experts. It all takes place at Riverview Theatre, 3800 42nd Avenue South, Minneapolis.

Tickets are $10 each for the Nov. 18 event. All proceeds benefit the Mississippi River Gorge Stewards Program. The evening is hosted by the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (IATP), Friends of the Mississippi River, Land Stewardship Project, and Birchwood Café

Tickets sold at the door. Advance sales at IATP (cash only) and the Birchwood Café.
