It started with a father’s quest to learn more about GMOs and now Nature’s Path Organic Foods, a leading organic cereal manufacturer in North America, is partnering with him to help spread awareness about GMOs as a presenting sponsor of Jeremy Seifert’s new documentary titled GMO OMG. The film, which traces the journey of a young father as he researches the prevalence of genetically modified food, premiered at the7th annual Culinary Cinema at the Berlin Film Festival on February 10.
“From the outset, Nature’s Path has been committed to working in harmony with nature, and we have always been opposed to the use of genetically modified organisms in any food,” says Arran Stephens, president and founder of Nature’s Path Organic Foods. “Through this film we hope to educate people about how the genetic engineering of our food supply disrupts our agricultural heritage, putting food, people and planet at great risk.”
The film was directed by Jeremy Seifert and produced by Joshua Kunau, known for their award-winning short documentary, DIVE!
“Nature’s Path was a natural partner for this film, as we share the common goal of educating the public on the serious impact GMOs can have on our health and the environment,” says Seifert “We’ve worked side-by-side with Nature’s Path on the Non-GMO movement and through this film, we’ll continue to work together to bring this issue to the forefront and create change.”
GMO OMG explores the systematic corporate takeover and potential loss of humanity’s most precious and ancient inheritance: seeds. Director Jeremy Seifert investigates how loss of seed diversity and corresponding laboratory assisted genetic alteration of food affects his young children, the health of our planet, and freedom of choice everywhere.
