ABOUT THE FILM

Why are GMOs not labeled in Canada as they are in 64 countries around the world? Ten years in the making, this celebration of nutritious food and grassroots activism reveals the extent to which industrial agribusiness controls food policy, making a strong case for more transparency and sustainability. Interweaving family archives and mouth-watering scenes from Aube Giroux‘s award-winning PBS cooking show Kitchen Vignettes, this heartfelt investigative journey is anchored in the filmmaker’s relationship to her mother, a prolific gardener and food activist battling cancer. Winner of multiple Audience Awards and named 2018 Best French-Canadian Film by Rendez-vous Québec Cinéma.
