Movie Info

Who controls the future of your food? GMO OMG explores the systematic corporate takeover and potential loss of humanity's most precious and ancient inheritance: seeds. Director Jeremy Seifert investigates how loss of seed diversity and corresponding laboratory assisted genetic alteration of food affects his young children, the health of our planet, and freedom of choice everywhere. GMO OMG follows one family's struggle to live and eat without participating in an unhealthy, unjust, and destructive food system. In GMO OMG, the encroaching darkness of unknown health and environmental risks, chemical toxins, and food monopoly meets with the light of a growing global movement to take back what we have lost. Has the global food system been irrevocably hijacked? Is there still time to reclaim its purity, protect biodiversity and save ourselves? (c) Submarine

Seifert approaches the subject from the perspective of a concerned father of three youngsters and he comes across as earnest and well-intentioned.

While the movie rarely feels like the definitive, well-honed dissection this critical subject demands, [Seifert's] lighter approach keeps a somewhat arcane topic more easily digestible, dare say entertaining.

This is a David-vs.-Goliath movie, but David's aim is so spotty that Goliath has nothing to fear.

[Provides] a gentle, flyover alert to obliviously chowing-down citizens ... without hectoring and with no small amount of charm.

Why anyone would think that home movies of the director and his kids belong in a social-issues doc is a truly WTF question.

Top Critic

A documentary that is by turns exasperating, illuminating, and intentionally infuriating.

Audience Reviews for GMO OMG

A great first step for anyone looking to gain an freshman intro into the whole GMO, FDA, USDA, Food safety, Corporate influence on Government world.

Valiant effort unwisely and poorly handled. Starting naively as a home movie, and extending it into a documentary home movie, the concept is good, but the execution only adds aggravation to the quandary presented with known, obvious answers, and little in the way of practical, useful answers. This did help the cause a bit, but no real answers, just opinions so far. 2 out of 5 plastic corn stalks

This is everything a documentary should be. It is disturbing to see how much an industry can affect the opinions of movie critics. See the film.
