Join NOFA-NH for a Screening of the Film "Modified"!
6:00 PM, Wednesday, November 28
Red River Theatres, Concord, NH
Join us on Wednesday, November 28th (AFTER Thanksgiving) for an enlightening screening of the film "Modified" on GMOs, followed by a panel discussion with NH farmers and advocates.
In this new, award-winning documentary, the filmmaker and her mother embark on a personal and poignant investigative journey to find out why genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are not labeled on food products in the U.S. and Canada, despite being labeled in 64 countries around the world. Interweaving the personal and the political, the film is anchored in 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, fueled 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. The film is a visual celebration of family legacy and the love of food, cooking, and gardening.
Celebrate food, family, the harvest, and the holidays to come at this NOFA-NH fundraiser!
