Trivia

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 »

Amazing Political Thriller!
19 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

Wow. This film looks amazing. So happy these filmmakers chose to make the first narrative movie about GMOs. I learned a lot from this article. I cannot believe GMOs are not labeled and in over 80% of the processed food we eat. This feels unfair. Why shouldn't we know what we're eating? Very deceptive. We need federal labels. So sad to learn about all the small farmers being sued by biotech corporations over their seeds. What's up with that?! Can't you just let the farmers be, man!?! Why do they have to rebuy their seeds every year and more toxic chemicals when the weeds become resistant? Oh, I know! MONEY! Very happy this film is getting out there.... will share with all my friends! Thank you CONSUMED!
