Evo: Ten Questions Everyone Should Ask about Evolution

directed by John Feldman

Spencertown (NY): Hummingbird Films, 2011. 107 minutes.

Evo “provides clear explanations for some of the basic principles of evolution and the history of life on the earth,” writes reviewer Mitchell B. Cruzan. “The film is structured around explanations of evolution by attendees at [a] conference—some of the best known researchers in the field of evolutionary biology. Their lucid explanations of evolutionary processes are separated by colorful footage of organisms in nature that illustrate the primary ideas.” But he worries that “the presentation was bland and probably would not hold the attention of most students” and would require supplementary information and discussion to be effective in a classroom.
