Amidst a brutally polarized debate marked by passion, suspicion and confusion, “Food Evolution”, by 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.
“Food Evolution” will be screened at Emery Station Operations Center (ESOC) on Wednesday, March 21, 2018 from 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM in Seminar Rooms A & B.
Pam Ronald, JBEI’s Scientific Lead for Plant Pathology, is featured prominently in the film, and will join the screening for a discussion about the film, science communications, and public relations issues regarding new technology.
