But as they navigate the agro-industrial gastronomical complex, they soon realize that nearly everything about the food system has changed since farmers once populated their family histories.

Film: GMO OMG

from http://www.gmofilm.com/ :

 

GMO OMG director and concerned father Jeremy Seifert is in search of answers. How do GMOs affect our children, the health of our planet, and our freedom of choice? And perhaps the ultimate question, which Seifert tests himself: is it even possible to reject the food system currently in place, or have we lost something we can’t gain back? These and other questions take Seifert on a journey from his family’s table to Haiti, Paris, Norway, and the lobby of agra-giant Monsanto, from which he is unceremoniously ejected. Along the way we gain insight into a question that is of growing concern to citizens the world over: what's on your plate?

Film: The Grain Divide

from http://thegraindivide.com/:

The Grain Divide is a cinematic journey into the most debated food issues of our day. The film began as an unbiased, journalistic pursuit of real answers to growing concerns with modern wheat and grains. Theories suggesting the elimination of what has been our most basic food for thousands of years triggered a passionate curiosity and mission. The film originally began as a 22 minute short with the working title “Rise of the Grains”. It turned into what would become a feature length, 3 year project across 10 of the United States.

We believed that in order to change the world, you must first study it. At first, we set out to simply understand. In a “silver bullet solution” world where perception is reality, getting below the surface and looking at past, present and future was critical. As the answers became clear, we were determined to create a film that not only exposed the real problems, but focused on real solutions. The project became more than a film. It evolved into a mission for the future of food culture, true sustainability & human health.

Historically, grains have built civilizations, and to this day stand as our most basic staple food. Without a doubt, things have changed. These changes have led to a problem. A problem that is building toward a potential crisis. A number of theories have been tossed about the media. Some of these have turned into profitable books, diets, lifestyles and now an exploding gluten free industry. So who, or what is to blame?

After decades of focusing on yield, speed, shelf-life and consistency in an industrial grain system, our modern definition of grains, wheat, flour and bread have drastically changed. The critical elements of human health, taste and culture have taken a back seat to the industry’s targets. To a degree, this has been the case in most food categories, particularly since the green revolution. In the cases of those foods, the people have responded with an ever-growing “farm to table movement” featuring organic fruits and vegetables, grass fed beef, cage free chicken, wild fish & a focus on artisan, holistic, craft processes.

"THE FARM TO TABLE MOVEMENT FORGOT OUR MOST BASIC FOOD"

The Grain Divide features some of the world’s top chef’s, bakers and food thought leaders in their domain. We take you inside the farms, kitchens, bakeries and labs at the forefront of the rebuilding of the foundation of our food. The film is a compilation of their stories merged with history, science and the most basic, simplistic common sense. We firmly believe that chefs can save the world, but not alone. When it comes to grains, it takes a village and it all starts with a seed.
