When her son's persistent rash won't subside, a mother begins investigating and finds herself pulled into the battle between small town organic farmers and Clonestra, a corporation profiting from GMOs.
Political thriller set in the world of GMO's (Genetically Modified Organisms). It follows a single mother who goes on a journey to uncover the cause of her son's mysterious illness. Interwoven are the stories of a CEO grappling with his son's autism, an organic farmer in danger of losing his farm, and two scientists on the brink of a major discovery.Written by
Many of the scenes were shot in the Natural History Building on the University of Illinois campus. The building was available as it had recently been deemed structurally unsound (and would later undergo an eighty-three million dollar renovation). The metal pillars in the hallways were actual support beams. The lab in which Kunal Nayyar and Anthony Edwards worked, was an evacuated honors class lab for Integrative Biology students. See more »
The first non documentary that tackles the hot topic of GMO's. The film does a very good job of setting the viewer up who knows little about GMO coming in. I thought the films asked the question "why are there no labels on food that contain gmo's". Simple question that many countries do not have because they label. With Vermont's law taken effect on July 1st it appears that companies are crumbling to the pressure and gmo labels will appear throughout the 50 States. Consumed tells many other stories within the movie, that help explain why GMO's are being thrust upon the American consumer with little science to back up their role. This movie really showed the under belly of how these companies operate to hold down the truth. Connecticut and many other states have labeling laws in effect and this film will help the rest of the population understand why labeling is so important.
