Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds. Worshipped and treasured since the dawn of humankind, Seed: The Untold Story follows the passionate seed keepers protecting our 12,000 year-old food legacy.
In the last century, 94% of our seed varieties have disappeared. As biotech chemical companies control the majority of our seeds, farmers, scientists, lawyers, and indigenous seed keepers fight a David and Goliath battle to defend the future of our food. In a harrowing and heartening story, these reluctant heroes rekindle a lost connection to our most treasured resource and revive a culture connected to seeds.
The film will be followed by a post-screening Q&A hosted by the Landworkers’ Alliance with Fred Groom, Seed Grower from Vital Seeds and Ellen Rignell, Regional Co-ordinator for The Seed Sovereignty Programme.
