As part of the Statewide Conference Justice Begins with seeds & GMO Awareness Week, we will be screening The Future of Food, Please join us!
The Future of Food has been a key tool in the American and international anti-GMO grassroots activist movements and played widely in the environmental and activist circuits since its release in 2004. The film is widely acknowledged for its role in educating voters and the subsequent success of passing Measure H in Mendocino County, California, one of the first local initiatives in the country to ban the planting of GMO crops. Indicative of its popularity, the Future of Food showed to a sold out audience of 1,500 at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco in 2004, a benefit for Slow Food, where it was introduced by Alice Waters.
Director Deborah Koons Garcia & Ignacio Chapela, Professor microbiologist will be there to talk about the film and answer questions
