BloomScreen hosts another screening (I saw it last week and it was incredibly eye opening) a "must see" educational film about GMOs and other toxic chemicals used in today's farming industry  "Genetic Roulette: The Gamble of Our Lives" (2012, 85 min), by Jeffrey M. Smith. This film will be screened the Tuesday following the March Against Monsanto, which will take place in DC on Saturday, May 25th at 2:00pm. Screening will be followed by a discussion with Emilianne Slaydon of GMO Free DC.

About the film: "When the US government ignored repeated warnings by its own scientists and allowed untested genetically modified (GM) crops into our environment and food supply, it was a gamble of unprecedented proportions. Never-before-seen-evidence points to genetically engineered foods as a major contributor to rising disease rates in the US population. Monsanto’s strong arm tactics, the FDA’s fraudulent policies, and how the USDA ignores a growing health emergency are also laid bare. This sometimes shocking film may change your diet and accelerate the consumer tipping point against GMO foods."

This screening takes place as part of the BloomScreen Indie Film Series which screens independent and foreign films every Tuesday night at BloomBars. Screenings are followed by a Q&A and discussion with filmmakers and other experts. Join their group on - The DC Bloomscreen Film Club - Film + Discussion / Every Week! if you want to stay in the loop with more advance noticed.
