Future of Food
There is a revolution happening in the farm fields and on the dinner tables of America that is transforming the very nature of the food we eat. This well-researched documentary by Deborah Koons Garcia, the widow of the legendary Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia, takes an in-depth look at the disturbing truth behind the unlabeled, patented, genetically engineered foods that have quietly filled U.S. grocery store shelves for the past decades.
This film examines the complex web of market and political forces that are changing what we eat as huge, multinational corporations seek to control the world’s food systems but also explores alternatives to large-scale industrial agriculture, offering solutions like organic and sustainable agriculture as alternative food sources.
