Roxie Theater

Screening of FOOD EVOLUTION to be followed by panel discussion featuring Scott Hamilton Kennedy (director of FOOD EVOLUTION), Nathaneal Johnson (Grist.org), Ted Nordhaus (The Breakthrough Institute), Pam Ronald (UC Davis), and Michael Dimock (Roots of Change). From Academy Award(R)-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. Enlisting experts and icons of the struggle such as Mark Lynas, Alison Van Eenennaam, Jeffrey Smith, Andrew Kimbrell, Vandana Shiva, Robert Fraley, Marion Nestle and Bill Nye, as well as farmers and scientists from around the world, this bold and necessary documentary separates the hype from the science to unravel the debate around food. 92 mins.
