Modified: A foodlover's journey into GMOs
Interweaving the personal and the political, Modified is anchored around the filmmaker Aube Giroux's relationship to her mom, a gardener and food activist who battled cancer during the film's production. Their intimate mother-daughter quest for answers, fuelled 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. A visual celebration of food and family legacy, praised by world-renowned chef Jacques Pépin as a “a very personal, tender, touching tribute and a well-researched, enlightening and powerful documentary”. Modified was an official selection at over 60 film festivals around the world in 2018, and is the winner of 13 awards, including four Audience Choice Awards.
