Synopsis: Amid a brutally polarized debate marked by passion, suspicion, and confusion, FOOD EVOLUTION, narrated by Neil deGrasse Tyson, explores 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 science driving both sides of 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? Here’s a movie that dares to cut through the noise to present new ways to look at a difficult global issue. “It is a brave, first-class effort that will age impeccably well, and perhaps punctuate the transition to a gentler time where science and reason rule over misinformation and fear.” –Kevin Folta, Huffington Post “A necessary contribution to ongoing debates over food and farm policy worldwide.” –John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter.
