Best in Festival, Princeton
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] IS A GORGEOUSLY MADE FILM, PUT TOGETHER WITH AS MUCH CARE AS ITS 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
