Save S-VE (Spencer-Van Etten) invites you to join them for a screening of the film GMO OMG on Sunday, February 28, 2:00 p.m. at the Van Etten Community Center, 4 Gee Street, Van Etten. The screening will be followed by a talk and Q&A with Jonathan Latham, PhD, executive director, and Allison Wilson, PhD, science director, of the Bioscience Resource Project, who will help put this all in context and answer questions after the screening.
A bit about GMO OMG:
What exactly are GMOs (genetically modified organisms)? How do GMOs affect our health, our children’s health, the health of our planet, and our freedom of choice? And perhaps the ultimate question, which filmmaker and father Jeremy Seifert tests: Is it even possible to reject the current food system, or have we lost “real” food forever?
These and other questions take Seifert on a journey to gain insight into a question that is troubling people all over the world: What’s on our plate?
NON-GMO refreshments will be provided. The event is free and open to all.
What: Screening of GMO OMG and discussion with Jonathan Latham and Allison Wilson (and food!)
When: Sunday, February 28, 2016, 2:00-5:00 p.m.
