SEED: THE UNTOLD STORY
(94 min) USA
Directors/Producers: Jon Betz, Taggart Siegel
The film reveals the harrowing and heartening drama of seeds. With ninety-four percent of our seed varieties extinct, the filmmakers follow passionate seed keepers protecting our 12,000-year-old food legacy. 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. These reluctant heroes rekindle a lost connection to our most treasured resource and revive a culture connected to seeds.
