Seed: The Untold Story (94 min.)
Online Viewing Link: https://vimeo.com/206488804
PW: S33dStuffz67 (access until May 1st)
For 12,000 years, humans have been cultivating seeds and building empires. In the last century, 94% of our seed varieties have been lost. As many irreplaceable seeds are nearing extinction, high-tech industrial seed companies control the majority of the world’s remaining seeds. It is a wonder of photography, animation, and sound. Clearly defines the mission of seedsavers—maintaining agricultural diversity for future generations.
