The Future of Food

According to her website, "The Future of Food was shown over a dozen times as a work in progress in Mendocino County, California before the March 2004 election and was the primary element in passing Measure H which bans the planting of genetically engineered crops in the county. ... All the people who worked on The Future of Food are proud that our efforts have had a real impact in the real world." [3]
