Marquis to screen award-winning GMO documentary

MIDDLEBURY — After screening at the Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival this summer, the award-winning documentary film “Modified” returns to the Marquis Theatre for a special one-night-only screening on Tuesday, Oct. 16, at 6:30 p.m. The special screening is being held to mark World Food Day.
“Modified” tells the story of a very personal mother-daughter investigative journey into the complex world of genetically modified foods (GMOs). The film, which has received 10 awards since its release, was partially filmed in Vermont and highlights the state’s historic fight for GMO labeling, as well as Vermont’s short-lived GMO labeling law, which was overturned by federal legislation in 2016.
A Q&A with filmmaker Aube Giroux and members of NOFA-VT will follow.
