The independent film series co-sponsored by the Sierra Club and Coalition for Change kicks off the new year with a screening of “Genetic Roulette” on Wednesday, Jan. 22 at the Cozmic Café, 594 Main St. in Placerville. The film is two weeks later than the regular second Wednesday schedule due to the Tibetan Monks’ visit to Placerville.

The award-winning 2012 documentary explores the relationship between GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) in our food supply and the rising health crisis in the U.S., especially among children.

“If you eat food, you are going to want to see this film,” said Patty Wilson of Coalition for Change. “GMOs have been linked to allergies, autism, infertility, gastrointestinal disorders and more. Why are we taking chances with our food supply?”

Using a combination of graphics and interviews with medical and scientific experts, “Genetic Roulette” offers up a clear picture of the problem. The film also addresses the strong-arm tactics of Monsanto and the connection between the biotech industry and the FDA and USDA.

“It is discouraging to see how the very organizations that are charged with protecting our food supply are actually in cahoots with the industries pushing GMOs,” said Bob Johnson of the Sierra Club.

Doors  open for the film at the Cozmic Café at 6 p.m., with the film starting at 6:30 p.m. A $3 donation is suggested to help cover the cost of the room rental. Food service ends at 6 p.m. so come to grab something to eat or drink before the show. The Cozmic Café is popular for its natural and organic selections.

The 2014 film line up includes “Dirt! The Movie” (February); “Wasteland “(March); “Taking Root “(April); and “The Big Fix” (May).
