What: Free Screenings of the Film “GMO OMG.”
When: Noon and 7 p.m.
Where: Rhode Island College, 600 Mt Pleasant Ave., Providence.
About: The film is being shown in recognition of Non-GMO Month. The film’s director, and concerned father, Jeremy Seifert, is in search of answers. How do GMOs affect our children, the health of our planet and our freedom of choice? And perhaps the ultimate question, which Seifert tests himself: Is it even possible to reject the food system currently in place, or have we lost something we can’t gain back? These and other questions take Seifert on a journey from his family’s table to Haiti, Paris, Norway and the lobby of agra-giant Monsanto, from which he is unceremoniously ejected.
