About the documentary

In the GM debate, both pro and anti-camps claim science is on their side, but who is right? Food Evolution shows how easily misinformation, confusion and fear can overwhelm objective analysis.

How do we ensure that our food supply is safe, and that everyone has enough to eat?

How do we feed the world while also protecting the planet?

Has genetic engineering increased or decreased pesticide use?

Are GM foods bad for your health?

And, most importantly, what data, evidence and sources are we using to approach these important questions?

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.

The film is produced by Academy Award-nominated director Scott Hamilton Kennedy and runs for 92 minutes.
