Special Southern California screening of the film The Real Eve, featuring Paul Ashton.
Narrated by actor and activist Danny Glover, The Real Eve reveals that our shared genetic heritage links every living person on earth. The film also traces the expansion of modern humans throughout the world, from our fragile beginnings in Africa to our exodus through South Asia, down to Australia, up into Europe, and finally into the Americas. Unfolding like a scientific detective story, the film enlists top scientists and cutting-edge research to explain that everyone on the planet today can trace a specific part of his or her genetic heritage back to one woman through a unique part of our genetic makeup, mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). It's quite a journey!
The Real Eve film screening will be held in collaboration with The Africa Society of the National Summit of Africa and the Discovery Channel at the Fowler Museum of Cultural History in the Lenart Auditorium. This provocative film will be shown, then followed by a discussion with producer Paul Ashton.
