Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds. Worshipped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. 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.
SEED’s is Executive Produced by Academy Award Winning Actress Marisa Tomei, Marc Turtletaub (Little Miss Sunshine) and Phil Fairclough (Grizzly Man, Cave of Forgotten Dreams).
“A superb documentary… visually stunning…A model of scientific insight, story-telling and cinematic panache that reminds us that the future of life under capitalism is guarded at best.”
“[SEED] is a gorgeously made film, put together with as much care as it’s subjects devote to saving the remaining varieties of seeds.”
– Los Angeles Times
“The frightening beauty of SEED is the clarity with which it defines the mission of seed-savers – maintaining agricultural diversity for future generations, whatever the world they inherit; it’s bluntly persuasive.”- Film Journal International
