    Ok, so, this is going to sound like a very ignorant question, but I couldn't see where this 'sound bit' was promoting anything except local farmers markets over large industrial farms, so if you don't mind, could you explain the 'concept of this documentary' to me, because from your title "New Documentary Continues the Attack on Organic" I'm not sure exactly what's going on here.

    I promote organic, I work trying to get gmo's labled, so this is an important to me.

      Hey Elaine, Seems to me that the filmmaker is making an argument that the definition of organic is so slippery in the US that it means nothing at all. I think that soundbite towards the top of the two women in Central Park sets the tone. She suspects organic "may just be some bull." Certainly organic regulations and labeling need a closer look, but I have a sneaking suspicion this may be a "documentary" version of that misguided conversation that arose several months back around a handful of headline grabbing studies that failed to find organic food more nutritious than conventional produce. See Dave Burdick's measured response--

      That said, I'm drawing conclusions based on a 2 minute trailer alone. Perhaps this film will surprise me, but I doubt it.

      By the way, how do you work to get GMOs labeled? Got ideas for the GOOD community (particularly on the heels of the failure of California's Prop. 37)?
