In a world threatened by overpopulation and over-exploited land, is there a way out of the coming food crisis? For the makers of SEED: The Untold Story, the answer lies in the creation and maintenance of localized seed banks where the collection of traditional, often ancient seed species will ensure both planetary biodiversity and self-sustaining food supplies. This inspiring film tells the stories of courageous individuals and communities across the planet: tribal peoples, citizen-activists, farmers, and others all working to ensure the earth's sustenance and survival. SEED: The Untold Story reminds us of the inherent and unstoppable power of community activism in pursuit of the preservation of our land, our communities, and our lives.
Presented by the Global Film Series
