Movie Info

Explore Milford Beeghly's obsessive quest to create hybrid corn in this playful, award winning documentary from filmmaker Monteith McCollum. Convinced that his product could play a pivotal role in ending world hunger, Beeghly began pitching it to skeptical farmers in the 1930s. Twenty years later, he was using television to get out his message, and people were starting to listen. By speaking with Beeghly and his family, McCollum simultaneously presents a rich portrait of a determined eccentric and demystifies the subject of corn hybridization.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

A stunning documentary that itself plays as a hybrid of something dreamed-up by Errol Morris and the Brothers Quay.

Film Freak Central

The director, Monteith McCollum, has created a living, breathing film, as interesting and moving as any fictional film.

Goatdog's Movies

Fascinating if somewhat sluggish documentary.

Film Threat

A highly unusual hayride through the cornfields of old, Hybrid showcases the odd and eccentric relics of a past culled from a family scrapbook filled barnyard cobwebs and the echoes of mislaid affections.
