SEED: The Untold Story
Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds — worshiped and treasured since the dawn of humankind.This newly-released documentary film follows passionate seed keepers who are protecting a 12,000 year-old food legacy. In the last century, 94% of seed varieties have disappeared. As many irreplaceable seeds near extinction, SEED reveals the harrowing and heartening story of passionate farmers, scientists, lawyers, and indigenous seed keepers as they wage a David and Goliath battle against the biotech chemical companies that control the majority of our seeds. “A gorgeously-made film” [Los Angeles Times]
