By Academy Award-nominated director Scott Hamilton Kennedy (director/writer/producer) and Trace Sheehan (writer/producer), the movie FOOD EVOLUTION shines a light onto a brutally polarized debate marked by fear, distrust and confusion: the controversy surrounding genetic engineering of our food.
It tells stories from around the world: the Hawaiian papaya groves, to banana farms in Uganda to the cornfields of Iowa, helping confront both the emotions and the evidence that is driving one of the most heated arguments of our time. This movie set out to tell the other side of the story, and possibly change hearts and minds.
To help us find out more about all this, we are lucky enough to have both Scott Hamilton Kennedy and Trace Sheehan on the show with us today! Read More
