Corn is the most representative food of the Americas. It was the main source of nutrition for several Native American peoples, so much so that they developed a series of myths about its origin, planting, cultivation and harvesting.

Today, corn is still the star of many traditional preparations, but also a cornerstone product of the industrial food system. This Food Talk focuses on th stories and traditions around corn from Argentina, Mexico, Peru and Bolivia. What emerges is a conflict between two worlds: on the one hand the farmers who guard native seeds and cultures, and on the other the industrial production of multinationals, made up of hybrid crops, GMOs and the use of pesticides.
