From Academy Award-nominated director Scott Hamilton Kennedy and narrated by esteemed science communicator Neil deGrasse Tyson, "Food Evolution" is set amidst a brutally polarized debate marked by fear, distrust and confusion: the controversy surrounding GMOs and food.

Traveling from Hawaiian papaya groves, to banana farms in Uganda to the cornfields of Iowa, "Food Evolution" wrestles with the emotions and the evidence driving one of the most heated arguments of our time.Enlisting experts and icons of the struggle such as Mark Lynas, Alison Van Eenennaam, Jeffrey Smith, Andrew Kimbrell, Vandana Shiva, Robert Fraley, Marion Nestle and Bill Nye, as well as farmers and scientists from around the world, this bold and necessary documentary separates the hype from the science to unravel the debate around food.

While the passionate advocates on all sides of this debate agree on the need for safe, nutritious and sustainable food for the planet, their differing views over what constitutes the truth have pit them against each other, rendering the subject of food itself into an ideological battleground.
