The film will be shown at the Yavapai College Center for the Performing Arts, 1100 E. Sheldon St. in Prescott.

‘GMO OMG’ is a family film in which a concerned father searches for answers to: How do GMOs affect our children, the health of our planet and our freedom of choice? And perhaps the ultimate question, which Seifert tests himself: is it even possible to reject the food system currently in place, or have we lost something we can’t gain back? These and other questions take Seifert on a journey from his family’s table to Haiti, Paris, Norway, and the lobby of agra-giant Monsanto, from which he is unceremoniously ejected. Along the way we gain insight into a question that is of growing concern to citizens the world over: what's on your plate?
The film will be followed by and a Q & A session.
