Food Evolution -- The Movie

The discussion of genetic technologies in food has been an asymmetrical fear fest dominated by misinformation.  The bad information has penetrated social ranks through the internet, but also through art and film. 

Scott Hamilton Kennedy and Trace Sheehan shatter this trend with a fact-based response to the avalanche of misinformation. In true documentary style they allow the story, the circumstances and the personalities to tell the story. 

You can listen to the an interview with the Food Evolution Director, Producer and a scientist in the film. 

The film is only somewhat about technology or "GMO".  It is really about science, experts, belief, and hypocrisy.  Why do you believe what you do?  Who is trying to fool you?

Jeffery Smith, Chuck Benbrook, Zen Honeycutt and "Food Babe" Vani Hari make appearances.  Their words are their own-- and it is refreshing to find a film that holds them somewhat accountable simply by letting them speak.

Critics of technology have already screamed that this is just corporate propaganda. Judge for yourself. Ask what corporation if profiting from resistant bananas in Africa or papayas in Hawaii. 

Please make a point to see this film, write reviews, schedule showings.  The penetration of the message is in the hands of those that stand up for science and reason.
