GMO OMG director and concerned father Jeremy Seifert is in search of answers. How do GMOs affect our children, the health of our planet, and our freedom of choice? And perhaps the ultimate question, which Seifert tests himself: is it even possible to reject the food system currently in place, or have we lost something we can’t gain back? These and other questions take Seifert on a journey from his family’s table to Haiti, Paris, Norway, and the lobby of agra-giant Monsanto, from which he is unceremoniously ejected. Along the way we gain insight into a question that is of growing concern to citizens the world over: what’s on your plate?
“There are still many people who aren’t aware of GMOs and their very real threat to biodiversity, the environment and our health (just poll your neighbors). Yet a shift in consciousness is now taking place and Seifert has deliberately couched his documentary to assist it.” — Organic Connections
