A Film by Deborah Koons Garcia

Mrs. Garcia (widow to Jerry Garcia) has done a superb job of demystifying the issue of Genetically Engineered foods. Viewers are left with a clear understanding of the science and politics behind genetically engineered foods and the threat that these GMOs pose to farmers, consumers, and the environment.

In addition to showing the film we will be introducing the Santa Cruz chapter of OCA and discussing our campaigns and local action opportunities.

Film Synopsis

There is a revolution happening in the farm fields and on the dinner tables of America -- a revolution that is transforming the very nature of the food we eat.

THE FUTURE OF FOOD offers an in-depth investigation into the disturbing truth behind the unlabeled, patented, genetically engineered foods that have quietly filled U.S. grocery store shelves for the past decade.

From the prairies of Saskatchewan, Canada to the fields of Oaxaca, Mexico, this film gives a voice to farmers whose lives and livelihoods have been negatively impacted by this new technology. The health implications, government policies and push towards globalization are all part of the reason why many people are alarmed by the introduction of genetically altered crops into our food supply.

Shot on location in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, THE FUTURE OF FOOD examines the complex web of market and political forces that are changing what we eat as huge multinational corporations seek to control the world's food system. The film also explores alternatives to large-scale industrial agriculture, placing organic and sustainable agriculture as real solutions to the farm crisis today.
