In Production

This documentary-memoir questions why GMOs are not labeled on food products in Canada and the US, despite being labeled in 64 other countries around the world.

Synopsis

Shot over a span of ten years, the film follows the grassroots struggle to label GMO foods, exposing the cozy relationship between the biotech industry and governments. The film is anchored in the moving story of the filmmaker’s relationship to her mom, a prolific gardener, seed saver, and food activist who was fighting cancer while the film’s production was underway.

Interweaving the personal and the political, the film uses family home video archives and playful cooking and farming vignettes from the filmmaker’s award-winning PBS cooking show, in a mouth-watering celebration of homegrown food. The mother-daughter investigative journey skillfully debunks the myth that GMOs are needed to feed the world, making a strong case for a more transparent and sustainable food system.
