If you have the opportunity to see the documentary “Food Evolution,” do it. It has been the most talked-about food and agriculture film of the year — and rightfully so. The movie examines one of the most important tools in today’s agricultural industry, genetic engineering technology, and shows the emotion and divisiveness created by three small letters: G-M-O.

You have a tribe if you’re pro-GMO

“Food Evolution” shows you, that if you support biotechnology in agriculture, you’re not alone — you have a tribe that shares your beliefs, that wants to help the voices of science to be heard for the betterment of society.

This isn’t the end of the discussion

This is just the next step in a long-running discussion about today’s technologies and what the industry and government are doing to move the system forward. We need to keep talking and to keep learning so that people get informed, while connecting with them on all levels — as a parent, as relative, a colleague, and as a person. This film is available via Hulu and Amazon. If a screening isn’t coming to a location near you, I encourage you to take the time to stream it online.
