(New York, NY) August 1, 2013 — Submarine Deluxe announced today that it has acquired the U.S. distribution rights to Jeremy Seifert’s documentary GMO OMG, an entertaining yet hard-hitting investigation of how laboratory-assisted genetic modification of food affects the world around us. The film is Submarine’s follow-up to the Academy Award nominated film CHASING ICE. GMO OMG made its world premiere at the 2013 Berlin International Film Festival. GMO OMG follows one family’s struggle to live and eat without participating in an unhealthy, unjust, and destructive food system. Has the global food system been irrevocably hijacked or is there still time to heal the planet, feed the world, and save ourselves? GMO OMG also takes a critical look at the corporations who control what we eat. GMO OMG was produced by Josh Kunau and executive produced by Elizabeth Kucinich, Jill Latiano Howerton, and Josh Kunau. Cinematography by Rod Hassler and edited by Terry Yates. Submarine Deluxe will release the film theatrically across the country beginning September 13th in NYC, with a nationwide rollout to follow.
