Food Evolution 

When: Thu., Oct. 5, 6:30 p.m. 2017
Price: $10

Put aside climate change, and the debate over GMOs and food might be the most contentious science-related flashpoint of our times. Bioengineered products now account for a significant segment of the world's food supply. The industry that produces genetically modified organisms says its products are innovative and safe, that they slow the impact of climate change and produce healthier food, that biotechnology can be an invaluable benefit for humanity as it depletes its agricultural resources. Opponents charge that Big Agriculture and its GMOs are literally destroying the planet, and both sides say the data confirms their cause. Food Evolution, directed by Academy Award nominee Scott Hamilton Kelly and narrated by Neil deGrasse Tyson, examines the issue in all its complexity, ranging from the perspectives of the farmers on the ground to those of the scientists engineering food nature never dreamt of. A slate of experts from across the food and science spectrum, including Bill Nye, Michael Pollan, and Vandana Shiva, also weigh in; this screening marks the film's North Carolina premiere. —David Klein
