Director Jeremy Seifert’s upcoming agriculture documentary, “GMO OMG,” has been in production since reaching its funding goal in the summer of 2011 via a Kickstarter campaign. Now, after almost two years the film is nearing its release, and Indiewire has the exclusive first trailer.
The film follows Seifert (director of the 2010 short “Dive!”), who in the aftermath of the 2010 Haitian earthquake decided to explore why the people of Haiti burned 475 tons of seeds donated by the agricultural corporation Monsanto. The film’s focus then shifts to an investigation of the use of Genetically Modified Organisms within the food industry and how these uses affect our daily lives.
“GMO OMG” will premiere February 10 in the Culinary Section at the Berlin International Film Festival, with a U.S. release planned for later this year. Watch the full trailer below:
