WORLD FOOD DAY SPECIAL SCREENING OF “MODIFIED”
Tuesday, October 16 at 6:30 pm
The Marquis Theatre, Middlebury
Q & A with the filmmaker and NOFA-VT will follow
“Modified” tells the story of a very personal mother-daughter investigative journey into the complex world of genetically modified foods (GMOs). The film, which has received 10 awards since its release, was partially filmed in Vermont and highlights the state’s historic fight for GMO labelling, as well as Vermont’s short-lived GMO labelling law which was overturned by federal legislation in 2016.
The film is also a visual celebration of food and the love of cooking, highlighting recipes and cooking vignettes from the filmmaker’s farm-to-table cooking show on PBS Food. World-renowned chef Jacques Pépin calls the film “a very personal, tender, touching tribute to a great mom, and a well-researched, enlightening and powerful documentary”.
The film is also being shown in Burlington at Vermont International Film Festival on October 19th, and at Montpelier’s Savoy Theater on October 17th.
