After every show, a reflective speaker will discuss the film. Speakers will include Moselle Singh, of Madison, Wis, and Patti and George Naylor of Churdan, in west central Iowa.
Singh is an artist who has worked at various nonprofit organizations, and worked in India with Vandana Shiva. Growing up, she experienced the effects of industrial farming. That catalyzed her activism.
The Naylors are organic farmers. In the early 2000s, George was a lead plaintiff in a national lawsuit against Monsanto, an American agrichemical and agricultural biotechnology corporation best known for its development of Roundup, a glyphosate-based herbicide. Monsanto has since been purchased by Bayer
