Please don’t let the funding goal scare you from donating. We can do this! Just think about it…if 10 people give $10.00 that = $100.00 x 10 = $1,000 x 10 = $10,000 x 10 = $100,000 x 10 = well over our funding goal! See how your $10 donation can make a big difference! Thank you to those who have given to and shared about our project. Please keep it up!
Story: Seed Police
(Synopsis and log line)
A farm family struggles to preserve some of the last pristine seeds on earth that could hold the key to human survival.
Imagine a world where the government controls the food you eat…even the seeds used to grow new foods are government produced. The government food program allows only genetically engineered seeds designed to produce disease free plants and to eliminate disease in the people who eat the food. Five years into the program traditional diseases are disappearing; however, a new disease is becoming an epidemic, with symptoms more virulent and deadly than ever seen before.
Few voices are sounding the alarm, citing a link between the government’s mandated food and the new epidemic. One voice comes from minister Brock Cameron who claims the government has taken science too far and is “playing God.” Congressman Jack Landon is also raising concerns for the dangers of the government food program. Meanwhile, doctor Charity Simpson is trying to track down the cause of the mysterious illness before another patient dies. The answer may lie with a rogue group of “seed savers. This clandestine band has managed to dodge government patrols and preserve some of the last unaltered seeds left on earth.
Impact: The story in Seed Police has the potential to make the proliferation of genetically modified food a topic of conversation at dinner tables throughout the world. There are efforts currently underway to require labeling of genetically modified food. Over one million people have signed a petition asking the FDA to require such labeling. Even though Seed Police is a work of fiction, some of the latest in scientific research and debate surrounding GMO’s is woven throughout the story of this futuristic film.
