GMO OMG: movie review

Movies, Documentary
2 out of 5 stars

(1user review)

Framed as a personal exploration into how genetically modified organisms harm people and our planet, Jeremy Seifert’s debut feature finds him hopping around the globe—his wife and young children in tow—uncovering the ways in which agribusiness giants like Monsanto use their patents to enforce destructive monopolies. The exposé offers some useful information, but its good intentions are undercut by the director’s officious presence and penchant for gimmicky, if modest, Spurlock-style stunts. Why anyone would think that home movies of the director and his kids belong in a social-issues doc is a truly WTF question.

I took my husband and our two boys to see GMO OMG and we thought the film was very well done. Jeremy Seifert was able to hold the attention of our two boys who left concluding that they would absolutely try to eat primarily Non-GMO verified foods. I am a medical scientist myself and I have spent the past 8 years educating my family about eating organic and Non-GMO foods. I was thrilled that Jeremy took on this project with a goal of enlightening the youngest through the eldest members of our society. I would highly recommend GMO OMG to everyone.
