Nine years in the making, this mother-daughter activist doc dishes out the reasons to label GMOs in our food!

In a film spanning nine years, director Aube Giroux canvasses movements across the world that are fighting to label foods made with genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Aube interviews scientists and politicians on both sides of the argument, weaving personal narratives about family, food, health, and loss into a touching and thoughtful film. Modified features interviews with world-renowned primatologist, Jane Goodall, and Canadian anti-GMO activist, Rachel Parent, as well as footage from Bernie Sanders. The film is activism inspired by love and respect for the land.
