Free GMOs Film Screening at CU-Boulder
Co-Presented with the College of Media, Communication and Information, University of Colorado at Boulder
Modified is a first-person documentary that questions 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.
Shot over a span of ten years, the film follows the ongoing struggle to label GMOs, exposing the cozy relationship between the biotech industry and governments. Interweaving the personal and the political, the film is a moving account of family legacy, grassroots activism, and the journey for a more sustainable and transparent food system. Modified is the winner of several awards, including the 2019 James Beard Foundation Broadcast Media award for best documentary.
A panel discussion will follow the film.
Note: WHILE THIS IS A FREE EVENT, REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Tickets will also be available at the door.
Sponsors: Department of Media Studies, College of Arts & Sciences, Environmental Studies Program
