From Academy Award®-nominated director Scott Hamilton Kennedy and narrated by esteemed science communicator Neil deGrasse Tyson, Food Evolution Movie 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.”

Join scientists from Cornell University and the Boyce Thompson Institute for a viewing and discussion of the recently released documentary “Food Evolution.” We will watch the entire film together and then our scientists, including two who were featured in the film, will engage in a moderated discussion and field questions from the audience.
