About the movie:
One of the world’s most precious resources is at risk. This timely and emotionally moving documentary illuminates what is at stake and what can be done to protect the source of nearly all our food: SEEDS. Seeds provide the basis for everything from fabric, to food to fuels. Seeds are as essential to life as the air we breathe or water we drink…but given far less attention. Watch the trailer here.
“This film is a seed in its own right and can play a seminal role in planting ideas that bring together food security, food sovereignty, human rights and the consumer right to know — exactly the “big tent” we need to win this issue.”
Wayne Roberts, Former Manager, Toronto Food Policy Council, Board Member, USC Canada, Seeds of Survival
