UCD Food Evolution Movie Screening May 2nd 7pm

Of possible interest – posting email I just received

From Academy Award®-nominated director Scott Hamilton Kennedy (The Garden, Fame High, OT: Our Town) and narrated by Neil deGrasse Tyson, FOOD EVOLUTION explores the polarizing topic of genetically engineered crops in agriculture, tackling this controversial topic to address the larger issue of how science and research is often misunderstood by the public.

The event will begin at 6pm with an Info Fair in the lobby of the Vanderhoef Studio Theatre. The movie will begin at 7pm followed by a panel discussion and audience Q&A featuring Director Scott Hamilton Kennedy, Producer Trace Sheehan, and prominent researchers.

Early Bird tickets are $7.50 each, available online only at EventBrite. A limited number of tickets will be sold at the door for $10. Please print your ticket and bring it with you to the event.
