The GMO Film Project (Untitled) tells the story of a father’s discovery of GMO’s through the symbolic act of poor Haitian farmers burning seeds in defiance of Monsanto’s gift of 475 tons of hybrid corn and vegetable seeds to Haiti shortly after the devastating earthquake. After a journey to Haiti to learn why hungry farmers would burn seeds, the real awakening of what has happened to our food, what we are feeding our families, and what is at stake for the global food supply unfolds in a trip across the United States in search of answers.

Today in the United States, by the simple act of feeding ourselves, we unwittingly participate in the largest experiment ever conducted on human beings. Massive agro-chemical companies like Monsanto (Agent Orange) and Dow (Napalm) are feeding us genetically-modified food, GMO’s, that have never been fully tested and aren’t labeled. This small handful of corporations are tightening their grip on the world’s food supply—buying, modifying, and patenting seeds to ensure total control over everything we eat.

Are we at a tipping point? Is it time to take back our food? The encroaching darkness of unknown health and environmental risks, seed take over, chemical toxins, and food monopoly meets with the light of a growing resistance of organic farmers, concerned citizens, and a burgeoning movement to take back what we have lost.

We still have time to heal the planet, feed the world, and live sustainably. But we have to start now.

  1. The way Monsanto chases ambulances looking for the most devastated people on earth in order to offer a “gift” of seeds that can’t be saved (much like the first bag free a heroin dealer may offer) show not only their elemental evil but a gutter meanness. That’s the characteristic combination we see in all big corporations. It’s the same fight in every sector.

  2. Their malignant pollen has already been turned loose in the environment, even if we stop them now the future of our food crops is uncertain

  4. I’m so happy about films like these… we need more information sent out to more people at GMOs. The people need to take town Monsanto by voting with their dollars…. Check out my guide on how to stay away from GMO corn at the bottom of this post – http://foodbabe.com/2011/06/14/careful-with-your-corn-non-gmo/
