PERCY VS THE GMO GOLIATH
It is not surprising that you haven't heard about this film much as there are some very mighty powers who do not want you to see it, but PERCY will
premiere next week at Canada's Sudbury Cinefest.
|Percy probably won't have a wide US release
Based on events from a 1998 lawsuit, it follows small town farmer Percy Schmeiser (Christopher Walken), who challenges a major conglomerate when the company’s genetically modified (GMO) canola is discovered in the 70 year old farmer’s crops. As he speaks out against the company’s business practices, he realizes he is representing thousands of other disenfranchised farmers around the world fighting the same battle. Suddenly, he becomes an unsuspecting folk hero in a desperate war to protect farmers’ rights and the world’s food supply against what they see as corporate greed. Christina Ricci, Martin Donovan, Luke Kirby and Zach Braff also star.
