GMO Film Project Sizzler from Compeller Pictures on Vimeo.
I am truly excited about this film. Jeremy has been traveling around the country for the last month doing some more filming since this sizzler was made and what he has so far is already amazing! (I love the clip of the Haitian lady dancing, so beautiful!)
It is truly worrisome what is going on with our seeds (and what's going on Haiti!) Isn't it just plain nature that we grow food from seeds and those plants go on to produce more seeds, and such is the cycle of life? (Finn explains it so beautifully in the sizzler.) Genetically modified seeds are changing that! Not only that they are being created to produce their own pesticides, and we are eating these toxins! It's all one big science experiment and we are testing it out... yikes.
Truly, these things should be labeled so at least we know what we are eating.
Why don't we care more about what we are putting into our bodies? A lot of what we are eating isn't really "food" anymore. Why don't we care about the ground and soil that provide us with food? We have lost a connection to the earth!
The message of this film is a positive one though, fret not!
" We still have time to heal the planet, feed the world, and live sustainably. But we have to start now."
Please consider supporting this film's Kickstarter campaign - $6000 more in 18 more days - we can do this, right?!
PS... Jeremy's boys are too dang adorable in this film. I think little Pearl needs to make her film debut!
