Massive agro-chemical companies like Monsanto (Agent Orange) and Dow (Napalm) are feeding us genetically-modified food, GMO’s, that have never been fully tested and aren't labeled. This small handful of corporations are tightening their grip on the world’s food supply—buying, modifying, and patenting seeds to ensure total control over everything we eat.<br /> <br /> The GMO Film Project (Untitled) tells the story of a father’s discovery of GMO’s through the symbolic act of poor Haitian farmers burning seeds in defiance of Monsanto’s gift of 475 tons of hybrid corn and vegetable seeds to Haiti shortly after the devastating earthquake. After a journey to Haiti to learn why hungry farmers would burn seeds, the real awakening of what has happened to our food, what we are feeding our families, and what is at stake for the global food supply unfolds in a trip across the United States in search of answers.<br /> <br /> Are we at a tipping point? Is it time to take back our food? The encroaching darkness of unknown health and environmental risks, seed take over, chemical toxins, and food monopoly meets with the light of a growing resistance of organic farmers, concerned citizens, and a burgeoning movement to take back what we have lost.<br /> <br /> We still have time to heal the planet, feed the world, and live sustainably. But we have to start now.<br /> <br /> A film by Compeller Pictures<br /> gmofilm.com<br /> <br /> Directed by Jeremy Seifert<br /> Produced by Joshua Kunau<br /> Co-Producer, Elizabeth Kucinich<br /> Associate Producer, Timothy Vatterott<br /> Cinematographer, Rod Hassler How to Feed The World? tag:homegrownorg.ning.com,2010-03-19:2263119:Video:33882 2010-03-19T20:12:27.317Z Cornelia https://homegrownorg.ning.com/profile/CorneliaHoskin <a href="https://homegrownorg.ning.com/video/how-to-feed-the-world"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="135" src="https://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/2777774459?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=135" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br><a href="http://vimeo.com/8812686">http://vimeo.com/8812686</a><br></br> a film directed by Denis van Waerebeke for the « Bon appétit » exhibition,<br></br> aimed mainly at the kids aged 9 to 14.<br></br> <br></br> written by : Sabrina Massen &amp; Denis van Waerebeke<br></br> design : Montag /// animation : Juliette Hamon-Damourette<br></br> sound design : Ruelgo /// voice : Mark Jane…<br></br> <a href="https://homegrownorg.ning.com/video/how-to-feed-the-world"><br /> <img src="https://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/2777774459?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=135" width="240" height="135" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a><br /><a href="http://vimeo.com/8812686">http://vimeo.com/8812686</a><br /> a film directed by Denis van Waerebeke for the « Bon appétit » exhibition,<br /> aimed mainly at the kids aged 9 to 14.<br /> <br /> written by : Sabrina Massen &amp; Denis van Waerebeke<br /> design : Montag /// animation : Juliette Hamon-Damourette<br /> sound design : Ruelgo /// voice : Mark Jane<br /> <br /> production Montag for the french « Cité des sciences et de l'industrie »<br /> CSI team: Dorothée Vatinel, Maud Gouy, Manon Courtay, Alisson Boiffard<br /> CSI production: Sabrina Massen<br /> <br /> Thanks to Grist and The Organic Consumers Association Animal Factory by David Kirby tag:homegrownorg.ning.com,2010-03-17:2263119:Video:33801 2010-03-17T16:13:14.590Z Cornelia https://homegrownorg.ning.com/profile/CorneliaHoskin <a href="https://homegrownorg.ning.com/video/animal-factory-by-david-kirby"><br /> <img src="https://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/2777778437?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=180" width="240" height="180" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a><br /><a href="http://animalfactorybook.com/">http://animalfactorybook.com/</a> <a href="https://homegrownorg.ning.com/video/animal-factory-by-david-kirby"><br /> <img src="https://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/2777778437?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=180" width="240" height="180" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a><br /><a href="http://animalfactorybook.com/">http://animalfactorybook.com/</a> Frankensteer tag:homegrownorg.ning.com,2010-02-25:2263119:Video:32971 2010-02-25T15:51:20.372Z Cornelia https://homegrownorg.ning.com/profile/CorneliaHoskin <a href="https://homegrownorg.ning.com/video/frankensteer-1"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="https://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/2777775085?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>"When you bring a package of hamburger home from a supermarket, you have to treat it as toxic material."

Mike McBane, Canadian Health Coalition<br /> <a href="http://www.bullfrogfilms.com/catalog/frank.html">http://www.bullfrogfilms.com/catalog/frank.html</a><br /> <br /> FRANKENSTEER is a disturbing yet compelling documentary that reveals how the ordinary cow is being transformed into an antibiotic dependent, hormone-laced potential carrier of toxic bacteria, all in the name of cheaper food.<br /> <br /> The beef industry, supported by North American government agencies and pharmaceutical companies, has engaged in an on-going experiment to create the perfect food machine to increase speed of production and reduce the cost of manufacture. But there is a price in producing a cheap industrial product. This benign, grazing herbivore has undergone a radical rethinking in how it's raised, fed and slaughtered, including recent changes in inspection rules have shifted the responsibility for food safety from government inspectors to the people on the floor who do the slaughtering and packing.<br /> <br /> FRANKENSTEER reveals some startling facts. Every year 50% of the total tonnage of antibiotics used in Canada ends up in livestock. And every year cattle raised in massive feedlots are routinely dosed with antibiotics even if they are not sick. For public health safety reasons during the current BSE (Mad Cow disease) crisis, North American health officials have labeled certain parts of the cow as bio-hazardous products and have ordered that they be handled accordingly.<br /> <br /> And consumers, by and large, are totally unaware of the dangers lurking in their beloved steaks, ribs and, most especially, hamburgers.
