Fun Friday Film Night – April 5 at 7:00 pm

Green Sanctuary and Calgary Permaculture Guild Present: Modified: A Food Lover’s Journey into GMOs

The filmmaker and her mother embark on a very personal and poignant investigative journey to find out why genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are not labeled on food products in the United States 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. A visual celebration of family legacy and the love of food, cooking, and gardening. Winner of six festival awards since its release.

Doors open 6:30 pm, coffee and snacks at 6:40, film at 7:00; discussion to follow.
Bring a dessert or appetizer to share.

Admission is free. Donations accepted to cover costs.
