Description

Film Screening - Meet the Director

New award-winning Canadian documentary Modified on genetically modified food

Film followed by short Q&A with film Director Aube Giroux and Lucy Sharratt, Coordinator of the Canadian Biotechnology Action Network (CBAN)

Presented by the Guelph Wellington Coalition for Social Justice and the Canadian Biotechnology Action Network

Modified is a first-person documentary-memoir that questions why genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are not labeled on food products in Canada and the United States, despite being labeled in 64 countries around the world.

Interweaving the personal and the political, the film is anchored in the filmmaker’s relationship to her mother, a passionate gardener and food activist. Their intimate mother-daughter investigative journey, fueled by a shared love of food and agriculture, ultimately reveals the extent to which industrial interests control our food policies, making a strong case for a more transparent and sustainable food system.
