dc.description.abstractThis support paper elaborates on the process of producing my MFA thesis film Modified, a feature-length, first-person documentary that questions why genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are not labeled on food products in Canada and the United States, despite being labeled in 64 other countries around the world. The film is anchored in the rich food legacy passed on to me by my mother who was a prolific organic gardener and seed saver, a true gourmande, and a passionate food activist who believed we should know how our food is produced. Shot over a span of nine years, the film follows the citizen-led movement to label GMO foods in Canada and the United States, questioning the cozy relationship between the biotech industry and our governments. Ultimately, the film makes the case that people should have a right to know what is in the food they eat.
