The Future of Food is a riveting documentary by Deborah Koons Garcia that examines the controversy over genetically modified crops.

According to the film (and we quite agree) there is a complex web of market and political forces actively changing what we eat. More now than ever, huge multinational corporations are controlling the world’s food system. The film also explores alternatives to large-scale industrial agriculture, placing organic and sustainable agriculture as real solutions to today’s farm crisis.

For those who care about where their food comes from, and how the spirit of food is being stripped away in the name of science, this is a film to see. And for those who don’t think they care about these issues so much, you might want to see it as well – it could rock your world.

“The Future of Food” is playing in New York City at the Film Forum (209 West Houston between 6th Avenue and Varick Street) until September 27th. For a list of other screenings around the country, click here.
