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.

Winner of the Audience Choice Award at the Sandiego International Film Festival, “Seed: The Untold Story” is a colourful, thoughtful look at the fundamentals of agriculture and food production. It is the third film by directors Taggart Siegel and John Betz on a similar topic, following “Queen of the Sun: What Are the Bees Telling Us” and “The Real Dirt on Farmer John.” The film took three and a half years to make from research to cutting room. They hope the film will be “… a catalyst for a burgeoning movement full of seed libraries, community gardens, and a new generation of passionate young farmers who are cropping up to shift the balance toward a more sustainable and sovereign seed paradigm.”
