The Williams Lake Film Club will show two documentaries this Tuesday – Genetic Roulette and Seeds of Freedom.
A very important subject at this time is genetic modification, something that is being pushed through by corporations and governments at an ever-increasing speed.
Even Bill Gates with his Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has purchased 500,000 shares in Monsanto back in 2010 valued at more than $23 million (source: Natural News) claiming that his benevolent charity is helping to eradicate disease and feeding the world’s poor according to The Guardian, a prominent UK newspaper. However, the documentary Genetic Roulette shows never-before-seen evidence pointing to genetically engineered foods as a major contributor to rising disease rates in the U.S. population, especially among children.
Gastrointestinal disorders, allergies, inflammatory diseases, and infertility are just some of the problems implicated in humans, pets, livestock, and lab animals that eat genetically modified soybeans and corn.
Strong-arm tactics by companies like Monsanto, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s policies, and how the U.S. Department of Agriculture ignores a growing health emergency are also laid bare.
The documentary Genetic Roulette is based on the book of the same title by Jeffrey M. Smith; Genetic Roulette: The Documented Health Risks of Genetically Engineered Foods.
Many tests have been done documenting these health risks.
When you do some research on the film, you will find that there are many strong opinions against it, so many in fact that you are left with the distinct feeling that this film is very uncomfortable for most of them, they would prefer that you do not see it.
However, this is a very important film to see to build your own opinion on the dangers for your own family and your very own life. You will get the feeling that future of agriculture is changed right before your eyes.
Our second documentary is Seeds of Freedom, narrated by Jeremy Irons.
It is produced by Gaia Foundation and African Biodiversity Network. This landmark film shows how the story of seeds at the hands of multinationals has become one of loss, control, dependence, and debt.
Screening will begin at 7 p.m., back doors open at 6:30 p.m. Admission is $9 regular, $8 for Film Club members and $6 for seniors (65+) and students, high school and TRU.
All of our proceeds help to support the local Learning Disabilities Association.
