Percy is an in October 2020 released American-Canadian-Indian biographical drama film. Directed by Clark Johnson from a screenplay by Garfield Lindsay Miller and Hilary Pryor. It stars Christopher Walken, Christina Ricci, Zach Braff, Luke Kirby, Adam Beach, Martin Donovan, Roberta Maxwell and Peter Stebbings.
Based on events from a lawsuit in 1998, PERCY follows small-town farmer Percy Schmeiser. He’s been growing canola from his own seed for his whole life and challenges a major conglomerate, when the company’s genetically modified (GMO) canola is discovered in the 70-year-old farmer’s crops. As he speaks out against the company’s business practices, he realizes he is representing thousands of other disenfranchised farmers around the world, fighting the same battle. With help of his lawyer (Zach Braff) and a community activist (Christina Ricci), Percy becomes an unsuspecting folk hero in a desperate war. To protect farmers’ rights and the world’s food supply against, what they see as, corporate greed.
