“The Most Dangerous Year” intimately chronicles the struggle for transgender rights, specifically focusing on the 2016 fight in Washington state over “bathroom bills” that would force transgender individuals, including children, to use their “birth gender” facilities. The documentary is the definition of a passion project: The filmmaker, Vlada Knowlton, is a mother with a young transgender daughter, and she and her fellow Seattle-area parents of transgender kids were instrumental in fighting the good fight in this particular civil-rights battle.

In “Modified” — a celebration of the love of food, cooking, and gardening — filmmaker Aube Giroux and her mother embark on an investigative journey to find out why genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are not labeled on food products in the United States and Canada. Interweaving the personal and the political, the film is anchored in the filmmaker’s relationship to her mom, Jali, a gardener and food activist who battles cancer during the film’s production.
