Event Description

• Thursday, Room B119 Wells Hall, Michigan State University **Free. Discussion to follow. Director Scott Hamilton Kennedy will join the discussion via Skype.** Amid a polarized debate marked by passion, suspicion and confusion, FOOD EVOLUTION explores the controversy surrounding GMOs and food. Traveling from Hawaiian papaya groves, to banana farms in Uganda to the cornfields of Iowa, this fascinating film wrestles with the emotions and the science driving one of the most heated arguments of our time. Enlisting experts such as Mark Lynas, Michael Pollan, 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, FOOD EVOLUTION brings a fresh perspective to one of the most critical issues facing global society today.
