    Event Description:
    FOOD EVOLUTION Narrated by Neil deGrasse Tyson
    From Academy Award nominated director Scott Hamilton Kennedy (The Garden, Fame High, OT: Our Town), and narrated by esteemed science communicator Neil deGrasse Tyson, FOOD EVOLUTION is set amidst a brutally polarized debate marked by fear, distrust, and confusion: the controversy surrounding GMOs and food. Traveling from Hawaiian papaya groves to banana farms in Uganda to the cornfields of Iowa, FOOD EVOLUTION wrestles with the emotions and the evidence driving one of the most heated arguments of our time.

    “Calm, careful, potentially revolutionary, "Food Evolution" is an iconoclastic documentary on a hot-button topic. Persuasive rather than polemical, it's the unusual issue film that deals in counterintuitive reason rather than barely controlled hysteria.” — Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

    “There are many reasons Monsanto raises hackles, Dr. Tyson acknowledges, but “to be concerned about the safety of their G.M.O.s is to be misinformed...“Food Evolution” was commissioned by the nonprofit Institute of Food Technologists , and the filmmakers retained creative control.”— Daniel Gold, The New York Times

    “Draws strongly on viewers' emotions but it doesn't skimp on science...Food Evolution takes viewers from the trenches of the anti-GMO movement, around the world to farmers' fields, and to laboratories of scientists tackling some of the most pressing agricultural challenges of our time.” — Kavin Senapathy, Forbes
