Who controls the future of your food?
GMO OMG explores the systematic corporate takeover and potential loss of
humanity’s most precious and ancient inheritance: seeds. Director Jeremy
Seifert investigates how loss of seed diversity and corresponding
laboratory assisted genetic alteration of food affects his young children,
the health of our planet, and freedom of choice everywhere. GMO OMG follows
one family’s struggle to live and eat without participating in an
unhealthy, unjust, and destructive food system. In GMO OMG, the encroaching
darkness of unknown health and environmental risks, chemical toxins, and
food monopoly meets with the light of a growing global movement to take
back what we have lost. Has the global food system been irrevocably
hijacked? Is there still time to reclaim its purity, protect biodiversity
and save ourselves?
Join us as we explore these important questions and discuss what we can do
to take back a piece of food democracy here in Massachusetts by passing
legislation that would require the labeling of all genetically engineered
seeds and food ingredients.
