This is Fed Up! Genetic Engineering, Industrial Agriculture and Sustainable Alternatives. Fed Up was released in 2002 by Wholesome Goodness Productions. More than a decade later, it still remains relevant. Most of the statistics are worse now and we are starting to see the rise of insect resistance to plants engineered to produce their own pesticides. There is still woefully little research available on long term ingestion of GMO foods and most foods in the US still are not labeled.
Description: Using hilarious and disturbing archival
footage (from archive.org) and featuring interviews with farmers,
scientists, government officials and activists, FED UP! presents an
entertaining, informative and compelling overview of our current food
production system from the Green Revolution to the Biotech Revolution
and what we can do about it. FED UP! explores the unintentional effects
of pesticides, the resistance of biotechnology companies to food
labeling and the links between government officials and major
biotechnology and chemical companies.
FED UP! answers many
questions regarding genetic engineering, the Green Revolution, genetic
pollution and modern pesticides through interviews with Marc Lappé and
Britt Bailey from the Center for Ethics and Toxics, Peter Rosset and
Anuradha Mittal from Food First, Vandana Shiva from the Research Center
for Science, Technology and Ecology, Ignacio Chapela from UC Berkeley's
Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management, Martina
McGloughlin, Director of UC Davis' Biotechnology Program and many
others.FED UP! also introduces us to local Bay Area organic farmers from
Purisima Greens Farm and Live Power Community Farm, presenting
community supported agriculture and small- scale organic farming as real
alternatives to agribusiness and industrial food.
