Director – Jeremy Seifer/2013/90 minutes
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?
Post-film discussion at Lake Theatre will be facilitated by Jim Slama, Founder of Family Farmed and Good Food Festivals. The Humboldt Park event will be facilitated by Joan Levin of IL Right to Know GMO and includes a sustainable food resource fair.
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?
