Storyline

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. Written by Collective Eye Films

A good tour of a very important topic
29 September 2017 | by parentjfSee all my reviews

The topic of seed conservation and food biodiversity is a very important topic in a world that normalize itself at a faster and faster pace. This documentary cover every aspects of the subject with concision and precision.

The production overuses the emotional component of the subject though. Covering important topic like this should not rely on emotion but rather on hard facts and with an accurate scientific perspective.

If you didn't already hate Monsanto before watching this documentary you might discover that you are capable of a whole new level of disgust and animosity.
