THE FUTURE OF FOOD

The Future of Food is a new documentary film.
“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.”
