The most serious mistakes are not being made as a result of wrong answers. The true dangerous thing is asking the wrong question.

Today The Walk a Mile Project starts filming in Mesa, AZ, launching the production phase of their documentary film on the GMO Controversy. The film, scheduled to be completed in mid-to-late 2016, seeks to answer the most important questions about the GMOs in our food supply, a debate that's really grown heated as of late, particularly with several states introducing their own GMO Labeling legislation.

Eric Battersby, Director at Change The World Films says, “Our goal with this first phase of The Walk a Mile Project is to see the GMO issue through to its tipping point, so that the world sees the truth about the controversy, and we can then finally work at putting it all to rest. Work is already well underway online with our GMO blogs and the GMO TRUTH podcast, and starting production on the actual documentary is just another key step in the process.”

GMOs entered our food supply nearly twenty years ago, and the controversy surrounding their introduction has slowly but steadily grown ever since. The question is, what can a nonprofit film company do to truly make a difference?

“From all the research we've seen, no one has truly taken a step back, objectively, and asked all the right questions,” Battersby responds. “There is a famous quote from Peter Drucker, 'The most serious mistakes are not being made as a result of wrong answers. The true dangerous thing is asking the wrong question.' At The Walk a Mile Project, we're very sensitive to that. We take a 'start from square one' approach, we're very thorough, and we're building and engaging our audience right out the gate. The release of this documentary we start today will essentially round out all that work, but everything we do until then is just as important.”

If anyone would like to help, Change The World Films now accepts donations online at, and people can also volunteer, apply for a committee position, or even join one of the nonprofit's elite donor programs, all directly from the website. “We really wanted to make it easy to join The Walk a Mile Project in any capacity a person might want. We're a nonprofit, so our donors, our volunteers and our core supporters are the people who truly drive our organization,” adds Mr. Battersby. “We don't walk a mile without them!”
