Film Synopsis:

From the creators of the award winning Queen of the Sun: What Are the Bees Telling Us? and The Real Dirt on Farmer John, comes SEED: The Untold Story.

Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds, worshipped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. Award winning documentary, SEED: The Untold Story, follows 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.

SEED features Vandana Shiva, Dr. Jane Goodall, Andrew Kimbrell, Winona Laduke and Raj Patel.
