A documentary about the hot-button topic of genetically modified food could be coming to a theater near you. It's called 'Food Evolution' and its director, the Academy Award-nominated Scott Hamilton Kennedy, says it opened his eyes to fact versus fiction on the GMO issue.
Already shown on some college campuses such as Illinois State and Southern Illinois University, Linda Olson with the Illinois Farm Bureau explains why the group is working with collegiate and county Farm Bureaus to bring the film to other schools and Illinois communities.
'Food Evolution' comes to Galesburg's Orpheum Theater this Sunday at 2 p.m., and at Freeport's Lindo Theater on Monday at 6:30 p.m. The St. Louis Science Center hosts the film on March 16th at 7:30, and the Sterling Theater will host it March 21st at 6:30. More venues in and near Illinois will host the film April through June.
