Short Film - Don't Let the Gene Out of the Bottle
A short film by Protect Nature Now
Don’t Let the Gene Out of the Bottle powerfully convey’s the threat to the human and environmental microbiomes as well as the permanent corruption of nature’s gene pool. Yet it inspires hope, revealing viable solutions to protect nature from this gene-altering technology, sometimes referred to as GMO 2.0. The movie inspires powerful emotions and a desire to take action. It presents real-world examples of lab-enhanced GMOs with the capacity to cause catastrophes such as threatening terrestrial plant life, altering weather patterns, or even creating enhanced viruses far more dangerous than COVID-19. The film features experts in the field such as Dr. Elaine Ingham, Dr. Jonathan Latham, Claire Robinson, Kiran Krishnan, Jim Thomas and Michelle Perro, M.D.
“I have made this film now, after 25 years as a best-selling author and activist against GMOs, because we are hardwired to have greater ethical concerns for genetically engineering humans and other higher organisms. From a global health and environmental perspective, however, altering microbes is far more dangerous.” -Director, Jeffrey Smith, talking about making his new short film, “Don’t Let the Gene Out of the Bottle”
