Green Sanctuary and Calgary Permaculture Guild Present: Modified: A Food Lover’s Journey into GMOs

The filmmaker and her mother embark on a very 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. Interweaving the personal and the
political, the film is anchored in the filmmaker’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,
fueled 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 family legacy and the love of food, cooking, and gardening. Winner of six festival awards since its
