Be The Change Presents
Wednesday, October 16th
Screenings at 5:00 and 7:30 PM
𝗕𝗲 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗖𝗵𝗮𝗻𝗴𝗲 returns for its 𝟭𝟮𝘁𝗵 𝗦𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗼𝗻 – proudly presenting another line up of amazing and inspiring films. You’ll see the best films our selection panel could find. This month’s film is 𝗠𝗼𝗱𝗶𝗳𝗶𝗲𝗱 – 𝘈 𝘧𝘰𝘰𝘥 𝘭𝘰𝘷𝘦𝘳’𝘴 𝘫𝘰𝘶𝘳𝘯𝘦𝘺 𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘰 𝘎𝘔𝘖’𝘴.
In the award-winning documentary Modified, filmmaker Aube Giroux and her mother embark on a very personal and poignant investigative journey to find out why genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are not labelled on food products in the United States and Canada, despite being labelled in 64 countries around the world.
Interweaving the personal and the political, the film is anchored around the filmmaker’s relationship to her mom, a gardener and food activist who battled cancer during the film’s production. Their intimate mother-daughter quest for answers, fuelled by a shared love of food, reveals the extent to which the agribusiness industry controls our food policies, making a strong case for a more transparent and sustainable food system. A visual celebration of food and family legacy, the film has been praised by world-renowned chef Jacques Pépin as “a very personal, tender, touching tribute and a well-researched, enlightening and powerful documentary”. An official selection at over 60 international film festivals. Winner of 14 awards, including 4 Audience Favorite Awards, and the 2019 James Beard Foundation Broadcast Media Award for best documentary.
