What happens to our food before it arrives on our plates? When a single mother discovers a strange rash on her son that no doctor can explain, she ventures out into the murky landscape of genetically modified foods looking for answers. As the stories of an organic farmer losing his farm and a scientist on the verge of a major breakthrough are interwoven with a mother’s search for the source of her son’s mysterious illness - we are challenged to rethink what we eat in this GMO thriller.
Join us after the screening for a panel and Q&A with filmmaker Daryl Wein and our non-profit partners, the Canadian Biotechnology Action Networks (CBAN). Stay as we unpack the film and discuss how GMOs could be affecting your food and health everyday.
Plus visit the CONVERSATION ROOM after the film and learn how you can turn your passion into action. Stop in for coffee and snacks, discuss the issues, sign petitions, volunteer and become more knowledgeable about the things you care about.
