Virtually Celebrate Earth Day’s 50th Anniversary


In celebration of Earth Day’s 50thAnniversary, Women’s Voice magazine, and The Non-GMO Project will stream the James Beard Award-winning documentary film Modified for FREE as part of their ongoing commitment to education. 

 

In Modifiedthe filmmaker Aube Giroux, and her mother embark on a personal and poignant investigative journey to find out why genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are not adequately 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, exposing the cozy relationship between the agribusiness industry and our governments. The film is anchored around 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. 

 

Modified has been the official selection at over 70 international film festivals and now audiences can enjoy it from the comfort of their own home where it will be streaming from April 15th up until Earth Day, on the 22nd at womensvoice.com/modified

 

Earth Day 2020 will be remembered as a defining moment in history, as no one on earth will gather. However, we can band together and watch this family friendly movie in our homes and across the globe to virtually celebrate Earth Day 2020.
