[SDCPJ] Please Forward: Activist Film Sat. July 28th @ 6:30pm : The FUTURE OF FOOD ~ Say no to GMOs ~ Label them!

Activist Film:
The Future of Food

Say no to GMOs ~ Label them!


July 28th @ 6:30 at Joyce Beers Community Center in Hillcrest.

Genetic engineering of food crops is as controversial today as ever
, as many of the large agro corporations that use this technology position themselves as the answer to the world food crisis and further consolidate the seed supply. The Future of Food continues to be a key tool used by activists and educators who call for increased attention to this issue. 

The Future of Food made a highly acclaimed national theatrical premiere at Film Forum in New York, followed by a tour of more than a dozen major American cities in the fall. Applauded by technology writers, food policy experts and environmental activists, the film has been shown around the world—from a plaza in Oaxaca, Mexico to the Jerusalem Cinematheque, and in citizen screenings all over the world—from India, Kenya, and Bulgaria to Brazil and Indonesia. It screened at a wide variety of professional gatherings, including the Midwestern Organic Farmers Convention, the Organic Trade Association 2005 trade show and conference in Chicago, and the American Dietetic Association convention. Columbia and New York Universities showed it to their students.

This movie runs 88 minutes.  Discussion to follow the film to focus on the "Label GMO ballot initiative".
