This long-awaited film release by French filmmaker Marie-Monique Robin is now finally available in the US!

The formal release of this chilling documentary is scheduled for fall 2008 with public showings around the nation, but the film is now available as a pre-publication release. 

Monsanto’s controversial past combines some of the most toxic products ever sold with misleading reports, pressure tactics, collusion, and attempted corruption. They now race to genetically engineer (and patent) the world’s food supply, which profoundly threatens our health, environment, and economy. Combining secret documents with first-hand accounts by victims, scientists, and politicians, this widely praised film exposes why Monsanto has become the world’s poster child for malignant corporate influence in government and technology.

“Devastating exposé . . . Will freeze the blood in your veins”—The Gazette

"Extraordinary documentary”  —LeMonde

“Scrupulous, thorough, and damning”Montreal Mirror

“Presents a cogent and horrifying enough picture of the world’s leading seed manufacturer to warrant concern and fury.”Hour



Originally screened on television in Europe earlier this year, the documentary spread like wildfire through Google and You Tube viewing’s before mysteriously being pulled from those sites.

It’s great to see that this vital piece of information will now be available to the American public, allowing them to finally make some informed decisions.

Further details of release dates and opportunities for community and group screenings can be found at Seeds of Deception, and copies can be purchased here.

Earlier posts here at Biodynamic Treechange including The World According To Monsanto and the follow-up Monsanto Responses, produced many comments and posts on a variety of forums and sites. This new wave of publicity is certain to do even more.

I wonder how the giant that is Monsanto will respond to this?

  1. Hey Laura.
    Glad you like the post and thanks for the links.
    And you are so right about the labelling laws. On the small scale , I’m so glad the we are in a position to grow food ourselves and share it with other like-minded people.

  2. You’ve got to get the labeling laws in place. And if you let them get off by not labeling ingredients like they do in the US you will NEVER know what you are buying! They keep it off our labels because they know Americans won’t buy FrankenFoods. Keep up the good work! I’m putting links to you all over my site.
    I mentioned Prince Charles on my garden blog too. I got a comment from a GM shill telling me how jealous Australian farmers are of the US. Such lies they tell!

  3. Hmmm… thanks Darren for commenting.
    Given that Princes and other heads of state are usually masters of diplomacy, for me his comments went as far as he could go without actually naming Monsanto – “Small farmers, in particular, would be the victims of “gigantic corporations” taking over the mass production of food.”
    Maybe we need to send him a copy of the just released DVD “The World According To Monsanto” which will lift the profile of the impact GM foods have in the US. Bring it on, I say.

  4. The point Charles missed is that GM is for Monsanto to take ownership of everything. notnews.today.com/2008/08/17/prince-must-prove-anti-gm-claim/

    • The claim should be easy egounh to confirm as either or both companies should need to disclose all ownership interests in any and all filings with the SEC, among other governmental agencies. Personally, I’ve been creeped out by the vampiric energy of Whole Foods since the original sale from the original founders and have definitely stopped shopping at Whole Foods after they bought Wild Oats and the debacle that reflected the degraded ethics of Whole Foods in that shift. But, Whole Foods serve a market for those who are not quite yet as sensitive to the wholistic connection of money, food, energy every place has its place in the transition to a higher vibration. Whole Foods is not my choice for me, but it definitely helps many people find their way to a different way of thinking about food and their bodies.
