Hawaii GMO Papaya: Real Solutions, Real Lives

By Joan Conrow and Robert Hazen
As the anti-GMO movement divides rural communities in Hawaii, farmers growing papayas genetically engineered to resist the ringspot virus have been caught in the middle.
This documentary chronicles the spread of the devastating ringspot virus, the development of the first transgenic papaya, and the rise of an anti-GMO movement based on misinformation and fear.
Hawaii agricultural leaders call for dialogue, discussion and accurate information about biotechnology to help bridge the divide and ensure the success of farmers in the Islands and other elsewhere.
