Seed turned out to be a great movie. Coming into it I did not really know what to expect for the duration of the movie but came away from it a much more knowledgeable citizen on a really important and overlooked issue. I knew some of the things that some people might have been shocked to learn, for instance the mass suicides of farmers in India but I didn't know the whole picture, history and scope of the problem. I didn't know we lost so much that nature and evolution gave us (humans and animals), permanently gone. It was quite shocking to learn. I did not know much of the legalities and history that shaped what has transpired to bring us to the present situation. This movie I feel actually helps me to see this class and environmental law's importance more clearly. It (environmental law) is so important in shaping society. It really should not be hard to see for me: I took Geography 102 from Barney Warf where he repeatedly emphasizes that space (the environment) is intricately/interrelated (linked) to time and obviously us, and we are in turn influenced by it, in our culture, beliefs, distribution, etc. That is not hyperbole, it is the truth. On that note, I think the movie does a good job of not trying to depict itself as overly important or epic in importance. It doesn't need to as it seems to just give the audience the information (from a more environmental viewpoint, but like I said earlier, the environment is the whole biosphere (or ecosphere if you want) of the earth from our human point of view) and let them form their own opinions but mostly just getting people interested and more knowledgeable on the subject, which is exactly what is needed.
