Join the Discussion & Screening of Modified: A Food Lover’s Journey into GMOs 10/16 @ 6:30p

After screening at the Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival this summer, the award-winning documentary film “Modified” returns to the Marquis Theatre for a special one-night only screening in company of the filmmaker and the Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont. The special screening is being held to mark World Food Day. Please help us spread the word by forwarding this invitation to friends & colleagues who may be interested in attending!

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.

We look forward to seeing you in Vermont!
