Synopsis

Director Jeremy Seifery is a concerned father who travels in search of answers. How do GMOs affect our children, the health of our planet and our freedom of choice? Seifert puts himself to the test: Is it possible to reject the current food system or have we lost something that we can no longer get back?

GMO OMG shows the director's journey from his family's dining room table, via Haiti, Paris or Norway, to the lobby of the Monsanto agricultural chemical supplier company, from which he is unceremoniously expelled. Along the way, he will dig into a question that is increasingly causing concern among citizens around the world: Do we know what we eat?

Reviews

With the cinematography and its family-centric approach, it takes what could have been a dry subject and broadens its appeal.

— Kymber Myers, IndieWire

This documentary is a paradigmatic example of a movie with a message inside it.

— Ana Morente, rtve

It is a small art piece made with modest means but with great creativity. The testimonials he collects are devastating and timely.
