FILM SYNOPSIS SEED: THE UNTOLD STORY is an award winning documentary about the loss of seed diversity and the future of our food, from the creators of the award winning Queen of the Sun: What Are the Bees Telling Us? and The Real Dirt on Farmer John.
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: THE UNTOLD STORY features Vandana Shiva, Dr. Jane Goodall, Andrew Kimbrell, Winona Laduke, Bill McDorman, and Raj Patel.
SEED: THE UNTOLD STORY, is directed by Taggert Siegel (Portland. OR) and is Executive Produced by Marisa Tomei, Marc Turtletaub (Little Miss Sunshine), and Phil Fairclough (Grizzly Man, Cave of Forgotten Dreams).
