The World According to Monsanto

May 13, 2011

Owning the Food Chain

On Thursday, June 9, 7:00 p.m., Conscientious Projector will screen the acclaimed documentary The World According to Monsanto, in which French journalist/filmmaker Marie-Monique Rubin investigates the chemical/biotech giant that brought us Agent Orange, PCB’s, Bovine Growth Hormones and GMO’s. The thoroughly researched film zeroes in on the company’s global crusade to patent seeds, outlaw the saving of seeds, and take punitive action against farmers who resist. Featuring Seeds of Deception author Jeffrey M. Smith, global sustainability champions Jeremy Rifkin and Vandana Shiva, and many more.  For anyone concerned about biodiversity and the monopolization of the world’s food supply, this is a must-see.

A community discussion follows the film, which is presented with the assistance of Robert Greenwald’s Brave New Theaters program. The film will be shown at the Armory Center for the Arts, located at 145 North Raymond in Old Pasadena. Admission is free. For more information, contact Marty Coleman at 626.792.4291 or visit www.seedsofdeception.com
