Robert Kenner is an American film and television director. He was born in New Rochelle, New York. Kenner has made other films and TV shows on the National Geographic Channel, and PBS. His best film to date is Food, Inc with over 500,000 DVDs sold. Food, Inc is also one of the top grossing theatrical documentaries of all time. Some other films are FixFood, War letters, and Russia's last tsar.
Food, Inc is a documentary about the corporate controlled food industry. With this film, Kenner explores all angles of this subject, and although some of the material covered is from Super Size Me and King Korn, Kenner is taking the topic a lot broader and shows the bigger problem and features going to major cooperation and learning where everything actually comes from.
The film was made nonetheless to inform everyone of what they are really eating. It also shows how the slaughterhouses and factory farms really are.
The main purpose of the documentary, Food, Inc., is to expose and show people that they have the right to know about the nature of what they're consuming. It provides a claim of how food industries sometimes revoke the rights of people to be informed about how their food was made, plus veils the evil doings of the processes used to create what we eat.
How The Clip Helps.
The clip brings up how much cheaper fast food was than the healthy food.
How poverty affects these family's with no spare money
Rhetorically, the 3 appeals were used greatly in this (Ethos, Logos, and Pathos).
Despite the unhealthy choices, it is what it is to stay alive.

Man, What A View!
-Major viewpoint focused on the meat companies and "farming" companies.
-Monsanto controlling all the farming with seed regulations and such.
- Consequences for doing what's right
- The tainted meat due to incorrect feedings
-Poor animal treatment, and failure to give them what they needed
- Music used was very glum which set the tone.
The Structure.
The argument seems to be structured by chapters. Each chapter, or segment, of the film tells a different story that, in the end of that particular part, goes back to proving the claim. From the E. Coli story of Barbara's son, Kevin, to the efforts of Monsato clamping down on farmers thought to have violate patent seeds, they all go back to the reason why this documentary was made. It goes as far as interviewing workers of certain industries on the conditions and the processing of their works, thus resulting in the revealing of the truths. Also, the statistics given help give the film credibility in persuading the audience about how the big companies seem to own almost all of the production industries.
Food, Inc. declares in its film that...

Three to four companies actually control the meat production in the U.S.
Monsanto, a sustainable agriculture company, owns over 90% of the patent seeds. They, along with mega-producers and mega-slaughterhouses, control most of the food production in the U.S.
Federal U.S. subsidies makes it cheaper for poor families to eat corn-produced items and its thousands and thousands of (mostly unhealthy) by-products rather than eating a homemade salad.
Use of old new's coverages about E-Coli to set the idea of how long these problems have been happening
Footage of Kevin playing, to show the cute innocence of a baby boy, and close ups on his face to reemphasize the innocence.
Hidden camera shots show how strict some places were with how they do business, and the hidden camera shots show the truth and such low quality footage shows how tough it was to get the footage.
On certain interviews, no lighting used to save the person's identity.

Going full out with the researchers from Iowa State University
Close-ups on meat packages to look "beyond" the packaging.
