Summary - 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 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.
This gorgeously produced film spells out the dangers of seed patenting and genetically modified foods, the growing lack of biodiversity and the shrinking number of seed varieties. Instead of changing the agrichemical model to regenerate nature, the biotech giants have built an unsustainable paradigm that controls the world food supply and manipulates nature to fit the industrial model. Ultimately, crop mono-cultures, the lack of seed and biodiversity and climate change could result in a catastrophic crop failure and widespread famine.
SEED interviews evolutionary leaders Drs.Vandana Shiva and Jane Goodall, as well as a number of seed savers, farmers, scientists and indigenous communities that envision a better world for future generations. This film offers hope and solutions - we can reclaim our health and future through practical community efforts, seed banks, and traditional regenerative practices
