Now playing: Nos enfants nous accuseront

With so much attention being given to non–fiction movies about life in (and with) the (altered? mutated?) foodchain, your Projectionist has just learned of First Run Features' North American release of the French documentary Nos enfants nous accuseront ("our children will accuse us") by Jean–Paul Jaud.

It's currently playing a limited engagement in New York City's Quad Cinema, but you can now pre–order the NTSC DVD (in French with English subtitles) from FRF's website (USA only); it'll street on October 26th. Here in the States, it's been re–christened with the clumsy title Food Beware: The French Organic Revolution.

Until you get your hands on this report from the French village of Barjac (where the local school went organic in a big way, and with good reason), here's a bit of a rarity: the original French video trailer with the film ID'd by its superior original title:

Even with this generously long {ahem} taste, it's too soon to say how much the Projectionist can recommend this one. But when he sees more ordinary people in a non–fic feature than the "talking heads" of experts, it's a good sign.
