Life Running Out of Control - Unnatural Selection, GMO Genetic Modification of Plants & Animals

This stunning, award-winning documentary by Bertram Verhaag and Gabriele Kr�ber reveals harsh consequences of genetic engineering on three continents. Vandana Shiva, Andrew Kimbrell, Percy Schmeiser and others, describe uncontrollable, self-replicating GM contamination, failed crops, farmer suicides, and new GM animals that threaten natural populations.

This stunning European documentary made available for the first time in the US, reveals several harsh consequences of genetic engineering worldwide. A failed GM cotton crop prompts farmer suicides in India. Windborne GM canola contaminates organic and conventional farms in Canada. One farmer fights Monsanto in the Supreme Court. A company seeks approval for giant GM salmon that may threaten the survival of the natural species. GM pigs are born with ghastly mutations. And experts reveal how inadequate testing and regulations put us at risk.

The Workshop deals with the threat of GMO-crops on rural livelihoods, especially for the neighborhood farming community in GM-intensive regions. Empirical studies from different developing countries are presented together with reports of farmers, who have been affected by growing GM-crops.
