What's on your plate?
That's the simple but all-important question asked by filmmaker Jeremy Seifert in his critically acclaimed cinematic investigation GMO OMG. This must-see film about the ways scientifically altered, corporate-controlled foods are negatively impacting our lives and perhaps those of generations yet to come arrives on Blu-ray and DVD from MPI Media Group.
Filmmaker and concerned parent Seifert goes in search of answers about genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and how they affect our children, the health of our planet and our freedom of choice. Spurred to action by his 6-year-old son's questions about seeds, Seifert begins a one-man investigation into the state of the world's seed supply---an essential resource in a world of increasing populations and rising food shortages. Seifert's journey takes him to Haiti, Paris, Norway, and even the front door of agri-giant Monsanto, the largest provider of GMOs in the United States, as he seeks to reveal who controls the future of our food.
By following one family's struggle to live and eat without participating in an unhealthy, unjust and destructive food system, GMO OMG becomes a much larger story about dark health and environmental risks, chemical toxins and food monopoly---it's an urgent plea for a global movement to take back what we have lost.
Critics have raved: GMO OMG is "lively and thought-provoking" (Los Angeles Times); "a documentary that is by turns exasperating, illuminating, and intentionally infuriating" (The Village Voice); the film "combines the folksy charm of Taggart Siegel's The Real Dirt on Farmer John and the frightening facts of Robert Kenner's Food, Inc." (Varitey)
Pass the potatoes. We think.
