Detailed Information:
Not for Sale is an engaging documentary on genetically engineered food and the patenting of life forms. Corporations are now able to own and control various forms of life, including genes, seeds, and even human stem cells. Not for Sale explores the ramifications that this has on a burgeoning world population, Indigenous peoples, and farmers.

With beautiful footage from the head waters of the Amazon, farms in Washington and Iowa, as well as India and Peru, plus glimpses of the Seattle WTO protests, Not for Sale brings this global issue into focus with stories of everyday people, tackling it in such a way that "makes this fundamental threat to the world's food easy to digest" - Matt Parish, Boston Independent Media Center.

Melissa Young and Mark Dworkin, of Moving Images, continue their series of educational programs about the risks and benefits of biotechnology with Not for Sale, asking what corporate control of life forms will mean for the environment, our food supply and human rights and advocating a world where life is not a commodity but something to be treasured.

Not for Sale is available through Bullfrog Films for $195 to purchase and $45 to rent. To order the film or for more information please go to http://www.bullfrogfilms.com/catalog/nfs.html or call toll free 1-800-543-3764. This informative and relevant film is not to be missed.
