Modified is a feature-length documentary-memoir that questions why genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are not labeled on food products in the United States and Canada, despite being labeled in 64 countries around the world. Shot over a span of ten years, the film follows the grassroots struggle to label GMOs, exposing the cozy relationship between the biotech industry and governments. The film is anchored in the moving story of the filmmaker’s relationship to her mom, a prolific gardener, seed saver, and food activist who battled cancer during the film’s production. The mother-daughter investigative journey debunks the myth that GMOs are needed to feed the world, making a strong case for a more transparent and sustainable food system.
