Beyond an investigative documentary about GMO labeling, Modified is a memoir of a daughter and mother whose farming and cooking traditions make the case for a transparent and sustainable food system that doesn’t rely on GMOs or the biotech industry that promotes them. Discourses on GMOs mix with heartwarming home videos of the filmmaker’s mother, a prolific gardener, seed saver, and food activist, and show her tending her garden, passing down her wisdom and skill to her family, even while battling cancer. The director stopped filming for several years after her mother’s death, but was compelled to finish the film in her honor. Filled with fun, delicious vignettes adapted from the filmmaker’s award-winning PBS cooking show, Modified is a celebration of love and homegrown food. Subtitles
