Liberty Theatre offers GMO documentary

Published:

 

The Liberty Theatre is airing a new documentary about genetically modified organisms just ahead of Election Day, when Washingtonians will decide whether to require labeling of GMOs.

The documentary, “GMO OMG,” is playing at 1:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 2-3, and at 7:15 p.m. Monday, Nov. 4, at the theater, 315 N.E. Fourth Ave. Admission is $4.

The director of the 90-minute documentary, Jeremy Seifert, looks at how the loss of seed diversity and corresponding laboratory assisted genetic alteration of food affects his young children, the health of the planet and freedom of choice. The documentary follows the family’s struggle to live and eat without participating in “an unhealthy, unjust and destructive food system.”

Seifert also directed the 2010 documentary, “Dive!” in which Seifert and his friends dumpster dive in the alleys behind supermarkets to explore food waste.
