Storyline

Today in the United States, by the simple acts of feeding ourselves, we are unwittingly participating in the largest experiment ever conducted on human beings. Each of us unknowingly consumes genetically engineered food on a daily basis. The risks and effects to our health and the environment are largely unknown. Yet more and more studies are being conducted around the world, which only provide even more reason for concern. We are the oblivious guinea pigs for wide-scale experimentation of modern biotechnology. GMO OMG tells the story of a fathers discovery of GMOs in relationship to his 3 young children and the world around him. We still have time to heal the planet, feed the world, and live sustainably. But we have to start now! Written by Anonymous

Amazing Film
29 July 2013 | by farmersdaughtersSee all my reviews

This is a sweet, funny, beautiful, moving, disturbing and uplifting look at one family's search for answers. Jeremy Seifert, the young filmmaker, takes us on a journey across this country and around the world, and allows us to experience for ourselves he and his family's evolving feelings and reactions as they gather more information about GMOS (Genetically Modified Organisms).

Go see it! In a time when so many problems bombard us and it is so easy to get discouraged and become apathetic, here is someone willing to take two years out of his life to pursue answers to difficult questions. The sincerity of the filmmaker shines through. This is not a propaganda film, although I am sure Monsanto and co will do their best to discredit it as such. It is a film that comes from the heart and goes to the heart. Thank you, Jeremy, for making this!
