Event description

Description

“A polished and provocative call for activists to be as scientifically minded as they believe they are.”- John deFore, The Hollywood Reporter

“With a soft tone, respectful to opponents but insistent on the data, ‘Food Evolution’ posits an inconvenient truth for organic boosters to swallow: In a world desperate for safe, sustainable food, G.M.O.s may well be a force for good.” — Daniel Gold, The New York Times


Amidst a brutally polarizing debate marked by passion, suspicion and confusion, FOOD EVOLUTION, from Academy Award®-nominated director Scott Hamilton Kennedy (The Garden, Fame High, OT: Our Town), explores the controversy surrounding GMOs and food. Traveling from Hawaiian papaya groves to banana farms in Uganda to the cornfields of Iowa, the film, narrated by esteemed science communicator Neil deGrasse Tyson, wrestles with the emotions and the science driving one of the most heated arguments of our time.

In the GMO debate, both pro- and anti- camps claim science is on their side. Who’s right?

Admission price includes light snacks and soft drinks.

Sign-in begins at 1 PM. The film, which is 92 min long, will start promptly at 1:30

NOTE: This event is FAMILY FRIENDLY!. Please feel free to invite friends, family, neighbors!
