GMO OMG

See Showtime Listings for This Week

“A documentary that is by turns exasperating, illuminating, and intentionally infuriating” – Ernest Hardy, Village Voice

“What Jaws and Psycho did for the beach and the shower, this documentary could do for the grocery store.” – Kimber Myers, Indiewire

“Plants a lively seed of thought … director Jeremy Seifert uses a light, entertaining approach in his survey of the controversial issue of genetically modified organisms.” – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times

 

Who controls the future of your food? The eye-opening new documentary GMO OMG explores the systematic corporate takeover and potential loss of one of humanity's most precious artifacts: 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? (Dir. by Jeremy Seifert, 2013, USA, 85 mins., Not Rated, Submarine Deluxe) Digital
