Santo: Our Possible Future?

The GMO Movement has generated a large number of documentary films that are currently being used to educate people around the world about the issues surrounding GMOs.  And while these films are invaluable, we need to reach out to the people who don’t normally watch documentaries, but who do enjoy watching mainstream feature films.

Up until now, there has never been a fictional feature film made about the very real possible potential of the GMO technology and what it holds for our future. But now, just such a film is in the works!  This film would have contemporary appeal and would reach a far broader audience than Documentaries ever have.
