KUALA LUMPUR: Amid the controversy over genetically modified organisms (GMO) and food, science is being kicked about like a ball between pro GMO and anti GMO camps.
‘Food Evolution’ directed by Academy Award-nominated Scott Hamilton Kennedy is a documentary on how misinformation, confusion and fear can overwhelm objective analysis on GMO.
The documentary was screened for the first time in the country at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre in conjunction with BioMalaysia 2017 on Sept 13th.
Wrestling with emotions and driving science along the heated argument of 21st century, the film gave the audiences a ride from Hawaiian papaya groves to banana farms in Uganda and finally to the cornfields of Iowa.
