* There's a revolution going on in the farm fields and on the dinner tables of America -- a revolution that's being fought behind closed doors of corporate boardrooms and government agencies over the use of genetically modified organisms in our food.   THE FUTURE OF FOOD offers an in-depth investigation into the disturbing truth behind the unlabeled GMO products that have quietly filled grocery store shelves over the past decade.


From the test tube, to the farm field, to the supermarket, the film follows the personal stories of the farmers in the U. S., Canada who have been sued by large multi-national corporations for continuing the time-honored tradition of saving seeds; of the scientists in the U. S. and Europe who have been censored for raising serious public and environmental health concerns; and finally, of the consumers, who are beginning to question why this has escaped the attention of both the media and the Federal agencies in charge of keeping our food safe.


THE FUTURE OF FOOD unravels the complex web of market and political forces that are changing the nature of what we eat. Food has gone from being a basic need to part of a larger billio-dollar battle to control the world's food production.

"This stylish film is not just for food faddists and nutritionists. It is a look at something we might not want to see: Monsanto, Roundup and Roundup-resistant seeds, collectively wreaking havoc on American farmers and our agricultural neighbors around the world. In the end, this documentary is a eloquent call to action."
