This event is open to members and nonmembers, families, teachers and others in the educational world. Food Evolution is a 92 minute documentry. We invite you to bring your families and friends. Children in middle school and up will come away with an understanding of what GMOs actually are.

The documentary film, Food Evolution, explores food-related challenges we face globally, the critical role that science will play in addressing them, and the public perceptions & misperceptions involving the science of food.

IFT funded the documentary Food Evolution to inspire discussion and show the critical role science and innovation play in building a safe, nutritious, and sustainable food supply for everyone. This film is intended to contribute to a rational conversation about science, facts, and food.

The world faces the challenge of feeding an estimated population of nine billion people in 2050. Because of the magnitude of this projection and the demand for safe and nutritious food that it brings, this issue needs to be considered from a thoughtful, global perspective. IFT approached several high-quality filmmakers, including Scott Hamilton Kennedy, and ultimately chose to work with Kennedy because he is known for his skill and integrity.

While IFT funded the film, it represents the vision, full creative control, and final cut that Kennedy and his partner on this project, Trace Sheehan, have maintained throughout the project. Food Evolution focuses on the GMO debate because the director found it to be emblematic of the public misunderstanding about the science of food and food sustainability. IFT believes Kennedy’s film is thought provoking and an important contribution to gaining a better understanding of the critical role sound science plays in the global food system.

Traveling from Hawaiian papaya groves to banana farms in Uganda to the cornfields of Iowa, the film, 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?
