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 battle cry for the future of our planet.
19 May 2017 | by maluia-wcmsSee all my reviews

Truly a must see documentary to learn from. Masterfully crafted in such a way that all the pieces fit together leaving you awakened to a cooperate world war against freedom. I was touched by the plight of farmers in India and industries cultural manipulation so similar to what Syngenta has done on Kauai's westside community. Corporate critics will attack the altruistic efforts of individuals like Vandana Shiva, however angels rise above.
