Is this corn a GMO or organic?
The film also seems to discard the scientific studies that have been done on GMO's in favor of on the ground research. There is nothing wrong with this method, but I believe that the narrator goes about it the wrong way. The author only spoke with a single scientist that had done research on GMO's, and he admits that that scientist's work was heavily criticized by others in his field. Instead of scientific evidence, the film takes the word of old fashioned farmers, Haitian peasants, and people who know nothing of GMO's over the evidence put forth by scientific studies. If the author wanted to make a truly unbiased and informational documentary, he should have taken a closer look at the side that he was arguing against.
I feel that this documentary is a good introduction to GMO's for someone who has no knowledge on the topic, but it should be taken with a grain of salt. The film is eager to tell what GMO's are, and what risks they might possibly pose, without bogging the audience down with all of the needless scientific mumbo-jumbo, like evidence. I would not recommend this film to someone who wants an unbiased depiction of GMO's, but for anyone who only wants their suspicions to be affirmed, such as the creator of the documentary, this film is a perfect match.
