October 3, 2017, 7:00pm - October 3, 2017, 9:00pm
Genetically modified food is one of the hottest, and most debated, topic in public policy that's based on scientific research. Opinions on the subject are passionate, and often polarizing, but do not fall along typical political lines. Amongst all this conflict and confusion around food, how do we make the best decisions about how we feed ourselves? Three organizations -- Illinois Science Council, Illinois Farm Families & Chicago Chapter, IFT -- are teaming up to host a public screening and discussion of a new documentary film, Food Evolution, about the science behind, and the debates around genetically modified food. Following the film, there will be a Q&A session with farmers and food researchers. Doors open at 6:30pm. Film starts at 7:00pm. Panel discussion at 8:30pm This film is not rated. foodevolutionmovie.com There will be no reserved seating for this event. Concessions, which include beer & wine, will be available for purchase. Validated parking is available in the New City parking garage for $5.50. for up to 5 hours. Enter from the plaza or on Schiller Street.

Gold www.nytimes.com/2017/06/22/movies/food-evolution-review.html?_r=0 "With a soft tone, respectful to opponents but insistent on the data, “Food Evolution” posits an inconvenient truth for organic boosters to swallow: In a world desperate for safe, sustainable food, G.M.O.s may well be a force for good." L.A. Times Review - Documentary 'Food Evolution' turns to reason to discuss GMO controversy by Kenneth Turan www.latimes.com/entertainment/movies/la-et-mn-food-evolution-review-20170629-story.html "Calm, careful, potentially revolutionary, "Food Evolution" is an iconoclastic documentary on a hot-button topic. Persuasive rather than polemical, it's the unusual issue film that deals in counterintuitive reason rather than barely controlled hysteria." Is ‘Food Evolution’ propaganda? No!
