About the Film

GMO OMG posterA genetically modified organism (GMO) is an organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. Genetic modification involves the mutation, insertion, or deletion of genes. Genetically engineered crops are crops that are altered with inserted genetic material to exhibit a desired trait.

In GMO OMG, concerned father Jeremy Seifert embarks on a quest to learn how GMOs affect our children, our planet, and our freedoms, and to determine whether or not our current food system is too intractable, and too inescapable, to ever go back to the way it used to be. Seifert journeys around the world 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?
