OMG GMO

Jeremy Siefert directed this film that is his personal exploration of genetically modified organisms (GMO) and how they are affecting our food supply. He travels partly with his wife and two children to farms and corporations in search of answers about GMO’s and the foods that contain them. He also is trying, in the process, of teaching his children more about the food they eat. I liked the movie because it was a very non-technical presentation of a complex topic, and I think that this serves as a great introduction to the topic of GMO, particularly for those who don’t know much about them. Consumers really aren’t aware of GMO and which foods have them (and, it seems that a lot of people just don’t care much for talking about them). Because of this, I give it a thumb’s up, but I don’t think the movie did a very good job presenting the complexity of the controversies around GMOs. Perhaps this movie could serve as an introduction to a deeper film that delivers a much more substantive punch.
