In the award-winning new documentary Modified, the Nova Scotian filmmaker Aube Giroux and her mother embark on a very personal and poignant investigative journey to find out why genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are not labelled on food products in the United States and Canada, despite being labelled in 64 countries around the world.
Their intimate mother-daughter quest for answers is fuelled by a shared love of food and reveals the extent to which the agribusiness industry controls our food policies. They make a strong case for a more transparent and sustainable food system. A beautifully filmed celebration of food and family legacy, Modified was praised by world-renowned chef Jacques Pépin as “a very personal, tender, touching tribute and a well-researched, enlightening and powerful documentary”. Modified has been an official selection at over 60 international film festivals and the winner of 13 awards, including four Audience Favourite Awards.
All proceeds from the screening will be donated to the Antigonish Farmers’ Market for their fund for a permanent year round building.
