Hammer Museum: Food Evolution

November 1 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Food Evolution

In the GMO (genetically modified organisms) debate, both pro and anti camps claim science is on their side. Who’s right? Narrated by Neil deGrasse Tyson, this “scrupulous, optimistic” (Forbes) documentary by Academy Award–nominated director Scott Hamilton Kennedy goes to Hawaiian papaya groves, Ugandan banana farms, and Iowan cornfields to investigate the heated and polarizing debate about our food and where it comes from. (2017, dir. Scott Hamilton Kennedy, 92 min.)

A Q&A with director Scott Hamilton Kennedy follows.
