Human Rights Film Festival at the University of San Francisco is hosting a

Brian Dowd-Uribe. #PublicScience

 

 

Movie description:
Amidst a brutally polarizing debate marked by passion, suspicion, and
confusion, Food Evolution, from Academy Award-nominated director Scott
Hamilton Kennedy explores the controversy surrounding GMOs and food. Traveling
from Hawaiian papaya groves to banana farms in Uganda to the cornfields of
Iowa, the film, narrated by Neil deGrasse Tyson, wrestles with the emotions
and the science driving one of the most heated arguments of our time. In the
GMO debate, both pro- and anti- camps claim science is on their side. Who’s
right?
