There is a revolution happening in the farm fields and on the dinner tables of America, a revolution that is transforming the very nature of the food we eat. THE FUTURE OF FOOD offers an in-depth investigation into the disturbing truth behind the unlabeled, patented, genetically engineered foods that have quietly filled U.S. grocery store shelves for the past decade. Shot on location in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, THE FUTURE OF FOOD examines the complex web of market and political forces that are changing what we eat as huge multinational corporations seek to control the world’s food system. The film also explores alternatives to large-scale industrial agriculture, placing organic and sustainable agriculture as real solutions to the farm crisis today. This newly manufactured edition of the film comes in special eco-friendly packaging. Support sustainable film-making. Buy direct from the filmmaker!

While our new abilities must be evaluated in the light of ethics considerations, the behavior of large corporations must be evaluated in the light of moral and legal considerations. Monsanto and other large corporations have been registering patents on genetically modified crops, and enforcing liability for wind-scattered genetically modified seeds found on non-customers' properties.
We should be aware of the activities of the corporations that profit from manipulating and attempting to "own" nature, and who are simultaneously decreasing biodiversity in agriculture, putting the entire world food supply at risk. Morgan Spurlock vastly advances our knowledge and awareness of these issues in this film.
It is up to the people to be proactive, and to protect themselves and their families; to become locavores, via gardening and farmer's markets. It is up to the people to spread the word on this vitally important subject, to their familes and friends, indeed to anyone who will listen.
The most helpful critical review of this DVD is completely valid, but deals with production issues, not with the premise of the work.
My advise to others is buy a copy for yourself, and buy one for your local library as well.
and groundbreaking that I was shocked I had never heard of it.
When I first saw it, I was so fascinated by this carefully researched and informative film that I immediately told everyone I knew about it. I assure you, it will affect you too. Debra Koons Garcia, formerly married to Jerry Garcia, has done an incredible job of covering the subject of genetically engineered crops, seed, food and everything you might want to know about
this crucial new field. She interviews farmers, severely affected by new laws and a Consumer Reports expert that in simple terms explains the science and its global ramifications.
It also explains the political aspects of why genetically engineered crops are being forced on the U.S. and the world and the government officials, who are at the heart of this corrupt corporate mess. It's all done without beating you over the head,
in a straightforward manner, with facts that are unassailable.
I am an award winning documentary producer, so it takes alot to impress me. She should have presented it for an Academy Award nomination. It's so important a film right along with "An Inconvenient Truth", that every American should see it. I don't know the filmmaker or anyone connected to this film and have never written a review of a DVD before this. For your health and the health of your family, see this, buy this, spread the word.
