Earth Day 2020 on April 22 is the perfect day to watch Modified award-winning film
streaming free online.

Earth Day 2020 will be remembered as a defining moment in history, as no one on earth will or should be gathering in a crowd.

In celebration of the Earth Day 50th Anniversary, Women’s Voice magazine, and The Non-GMO Project will stream the James Beard Foundation Broadcast Award-winning documentary film Modified for FREE as part of their ongoing commitment to education.

In Modified, the filmmaker Aube Giroux, and her mother embark on a personal and poignant investigative journey. They want to find out why genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are not adequately 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 explores the impacts of genetically engineering our food, exposing the relationship between the agribusiness industry and our governments. The film is an anchor around the intimate story of the filmmaker’s relationship to her mom, a gardener, seed saver, and food activist who battled cancer while the film’s production was underway.

Interweaving the personal and the political, the film uses family video, animations, and vignettes from the filmmaker’s award-winning PBS cooking show to create a visual celebration of homegrown food and family legacy.

Modified has been the official selection at over 70 international film festivals and now audiences can enjoy it from the comfort of their own home. The film will be streaming from April 15th up until Earth Day, on the 22nd at womensvoice.com/modified.

Earth Day 2020 will be remembered as a defining moment in history, as no one on earth will gather. However, we can band together and watch this family friendly movie in our homes and across the globe to virtually celebrate Earth Day 2020.
