GMO OMG, free educational film screening
Rockford Public Library--East Branch 6685 E. State Street in Rockford
Filmmaker and concerned father Jeremy Seifert is in search of answers about genetically modified organisms (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 United States, 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? GMO OMG is a timely, informative, entertaining, and ultimately insightful documentary about the question that’s a growing concern to citizens around the world: who controls the future of our food?
