In the award-winning documentary Modified, the filmmaker and her mother embark on a personal and poignant investigative journey to find out 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 explores the impacts of genetically engineering our food. Modified is anchored in the intimate story of the filmmaker’s relationship to her mom, a gardener, seed saver and food activist who battled cancer while the film’s production was underway. Interweaving the personal and the political, the film uses family video, animations and mouthwatering vignettes from the filmmaker’s award-winning PBS cooking show to create a visual celebration of homegrown food and family legacy.
