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 in America protecting a 12,000 year-old food legacy. In the last century, 94% of seed varieties have disappeared. As biotech chemical companies control the majority of seeds in the US, farmers, scientists, lawyers, and indigenous seed keepers fight a David and Goliath battle to defend the future of food. In a harrowing and heartening story, these reluctant heroes rekindle a lost connection to the most treasured resource and revive a culture connected to seeds.
Even though this film is set in an American context, the problem cannot be ignored. As a growing industrial country, we need to be aware of the worldly issues affecting agriculture on a worldwide scale.
