“GMO OMG” opens tonight at SIFF

GMO OMGGMO OMG opens in Seattle tonight (Fri, Sept 27) at SIFF. Are you planning to attend?

Tonight there is a Q&A with Pamm Larry, California Grassroots Leader & Initial Instigator of Prop 37.

The film shows again tomorrow (Sat, Sept 28) at 3pm & 5:15.

As a proud supporter of Yes on 522, the GMO labeling initiative, Slow Food Seattle has shared numerous Yes on I-522 related updates/events/and posts on our page.

The timing of the film’s release couldn’t have come at a better time, as we are just over a month away from I-522 going up for a vote in WA state.

There have been a couple of pre-screenings already -including one hosted by PCC Natural Markets at Seattle Art Museum last Wednesday. Have you viewed the film or heard much buzz about it already? We’d love to hear your thoughts.

More info and reviews on the film and watch the trailer at the bottom of the post.

GMO OMG, take the audience on a journey to explore the unknown health and environmental risks of GMO’s, chemical toxins, and the food monopoly as well as the growing global movement to take back what we have lost.
