Join C2ST and 2Blades for a film screening of the provocative documentary, FOOD EVOLUTION, followed by a discussion with a panel of experts in food technology, farming, and policy, including the director of the film, Scott Hamilton Kennedy.

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?
