2016 Alumni

Expected to Attend: Scott Hamilton Kennedy; writer/producer Trace Sheehan; narrator Neil deGrasse Tyson

WORLD PREMIERE As society tackles the problem of feeding our expanding population safely and sustainably, a schism has arisen between scientists and consumers, motivated by fear and distrust. Food Evolution, narrated by Neil deGrasse Tyson, explores the polarized debate surrounding GMOs. Looking at the real-world application of food science in the past and present, the film argues for sound science and open-mindedness in a culture that increasingly shows resistance to both.
