OMG GMO

6 PM Business & Buffet
6:30 Film & Discussion
Runtime: 85 Minutes



Filmmaker and concerned father Jeremy Seifert is in search of answers about GMOs and how they affect our children, the health of our planet, and our freedom of choice.  His journey takes him to Haiti, Paris, Norway, and even the front door of agri-giant Monsanto, the largest provider of GMOs in the U.S., as he poses perhaps the ultimate question about what we eat: is it still possible to reject our current food system, or have we already lost something we can't get back. 


The documentary presents a balanced review of the science of the possible dangers of these foods, their effects on seed ownership and family farms, the battle over food labeling, and the pervasiveness of GMO foods in the U.S. 


The film is informative, entertaining, funny, and timely.  It is also important to note that GMOs have a role in the vital issue of climate change.
