Episode 12: Food Evolution

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.
