The Liberty Theatre in downtown Camas presents “Food Evolution” in its Main Theatre, the regional premiere of this thought-provoking documentary co-presented by the Camas Farmers Market with a post-screening discussions. Tickets are $6 per person.
Amongst the growing conflict and confusion around food, how do we make the best decisions about how we feed ourselves? 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.
Showings are Sunday, Oct. 8, at 3 p.m. and Monday, Oct. 9, at 6 p.m. The Liberty Theatre is located at 315 N.E. 4th Ave. in downtown Camas. Popcorn, ice cream, candy, craft beer, fine wine, and other goodies are available in the lobby to enjoy while you watch the movie.
