Who controls the future of your food? GMO OMG investigates how corporations have systematically taken over humanity’s most precious and ancient inheritance: seeds. Director Jeremy Seifert explores how the potential loss of seed diversity and laboratory assisted genetically modified foods are affecting our children, the health of our planet, and the freedom of choice everywhere.
It is a story of one family’s struggle to live and eat without participating in an unhealthy, unjust, and destructive food system. The risks and effects of GMO foods to our health and the environment are still largely unknown. Yet more and more studies are being conducted around the world, which only provide even more reason for concern. We are the oblivious guinea pigs for wide-scale experimentation of modern biotechnology. But is it even possible to reject our planets current food system, or has our global food system been irrevocably hijacked? Is there still time to reclaim its purity, protect biodiversity and save ourselves?
GMO OMG takes us on a journey to answer these many other questions, from Seifert’s family table to Haiti, Paris, Norway, and the lobby of agra-giant Monsanto, from which he is unceremoniously ejected.
