“Modified” Synopsis

Modified is an award-winning documentary-memoir that asks why genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are not labelled on food products in Canada and the United States, despite being labelled in 64 countries around the world. Interweaving the personal and the political, the film is anchored in the filmmaker’s relationship with her mother, a gardening and food activist who battled cancer during the film’s production. Their intimate mother-daughter investigative journey, fueled by a shared love of food, reveals the extent to which the agribusiness industry controls our food policies, making a strong case for a more transparent and sustainable food system. Winner of six festival awards since its fall 2017 release.
