Information

-Synopsis

The story of GMOs spills far beyond our borders and threatening the global food supply. In contrast to North America’s silent, the film looks at the defiance of peasant farmers from Haiti. In spite of their poverty and hunger, the peasants committed themselves to burning the seeds. What do these Haiti farmers know that we don’t?

-Program Note

In contrast to North America’s silent and almost disinterested acceptance of the most significant alteration of food in the history of the world, the film looks at the defiance of peasant farmers from Haiti, who marched in the streets in protest of Monsanto’s “gift” of seeds to Haiti after the devastating earthquake. In spite of their poverty and hunger, the peasants committed themselves to burning the seeds. Why do many developed nations in Europe and around the world ban, burn and protest vehemently against the introduction of GMO crops? Why aren’t people in North America, where these corporations reside and where these genetically modified crops are being patented and developed, marching in the streets to protest the take over and contamination of our food supply?
