The Future of Food distills the complex technology and consumer issues surrounding major changes in the food system today — genetically engineered foods, patenting, and the corporatization of food — into terms the average person can understand. It empowers consumers to realize the consequences of their food choices on our future.
About the Filmmakers
The Future of Food was produced by Lily Films and directed by Deborah Koons Garcia. Find out more about the film at thefutureoffood.com.
“Monsanto will attack Garcia’s documentary as a piece of unbalanced journalism, but The Future of Food doesn’t need to put corporate spokespeople on camera to attain credibility. Garcia uses their own public relations video to show how much spin they are doing to convince the general public that their motives are good. One of 2005’s must-see documentaries, this one will motivate many of its audience members to reconsider their eating (and purchasing) habits. Garcia, the widow of Grateful Dead star Jerry Garcia, has taken a complex subject and made it digestible for anyone who cares about what they put into their stomachs.” – Jonathan Curiel. SF Gate.

“This documentary about genetically engineered food is really eye-opening. . .Because I believe that knowledge is power, I recommend that everyone watch this movie to become educated on the issues we are currently facing that undoubtedly affect you, your children, and the entire human population.” – Powered by Produce.
