OCA's selection of anti-GMO videos

Movies to Inspire You to Boycott GMOs

Boycott Monsanto's Corn: King Corn

For the documentary King Corn, filmmakers Curt Ellis and Ian Cheney had their hair tested and learned that they were 39 and 43 percent corn, respectively. This extended film clip explains how so much (genetically engineered) corn ends up in the US diet.

Curt and Ian tried to go without eating corn for a month. They had to give up foods as (seemingly) diverse as dairy, non-dairy cheese, bread, tortillas, meat and beer.

The alternatives to the corn-based industrial food system that Curt and Ian found were grass-fed and finished meats and cheeses, and direct-from-the-farm fruits and vegetables purchased through Community Supported Agriculture programs


Boycott Monsanto's Soy: Food, Inc.

The documentary Food, Inc. includes a segment explaining how Monsanto gained control over soy bean seeds, even non-GMO seeds, by suing farmers, claiming that the farmers had stolen their genetically engineered traits, when the farmers had actually been inadvertently contaminated by neighboring farms growing Monsanto's GMO seeds.


Boycott Monsanto's Cotton: The World According to Monsanto

The documentary The World According to Monsanto pieces together the story of the century-old corporation that is today's leader in genetically modified crops. Claiming it wants to solve world hunger and protect the environment, Monsanto's quest for market supremacy is to the detriment of global food security and environmental stability. The film includes a look at the suicide deaths of cotton growers in India, where Bt cotton has been introduced by Monsanto.


Boycott Monsanto's Canola: Canadian Canola Grower: "Contamination is Inevitable"

Canadian farmer Ross Murray used to grow genetically engineered (GE) canola. That is until he discovered the GE canola wasn't delivering on its promise and actually became a weed problem itself.

"The canola that grew in subsequent years became a weed problem, a weed problem that had to be managed, to be sprayed for," says Ross.

In this short video by Greenpeace, Ross explains why he stopped growing GE canola and why he believes contamination of non-GE canola is inevitable wherever GE canola is grown.
