“Per acre there is more kinds of GMO crop experimentation in Hawaii than anywhere else in the world,” as stated in Cliff Kapono’s newest collaborative film with Cyrus Sutton, Island Earth. The documentary looks to explain the complex story of Big Island native, Cliff Kapono’s, struggle with GMO’s and the modern day agricultural situation in the Hawaiian Islands. Most importantly it looks to empower the local communities in the islands of Hawaii and open conversation with these corporations to make change in the way they proceed with experimental agriculture.
For those of you that missed “Island Earth” here in San Diego, it is a must see. Check out the trailer below for a peak into this tremendous film. Not to mention for all you East Coast tribe members out there, stay tuned for a showing in your home town!
