Adocumentary that will chill you to the bone, “Tous Cobayes?” by French filmmaker Jean-Paul Jaud addresses the enormous risks posed by GMO food, much of which is manufactured and distributed by the kingpin of the franken-food industry: Monsanto. In the last decade, GMO has become a byword for progressive agriculture, with the U.S. being its biggest endorser (GMO labeling is outlawed in North America). The technology is rampant in the fields of South America and India, and is now being tested in Africa.

The jarring news is that Japan is the world’s leading importer of GMO products, primarily soybeans. The Japanese government and media have failed to shed any light on the issue, along with the events in Fukushima, which the film also delves into.
