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?
The film will be shown on a new 16’ theatrical screen on the Rotary Stage at Andrews Hall, and followed by informal conversation to encourage community dialogue and engagement. Doors will open at 7 p.m. Refreshments will be provided.
This new film series is co-sponsored by Transition Sonoma Valley and the Sonoma Community Center, with additional support from Whole Foods Sonoma and Lagunitas Brewery.
