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

Seeds too be sown and owned by who?
17 June 2019 | by alan-72130See all my reviews

See this documentary now, it is an eye opener and you will not be disappointed. Informative with compelling interviews (Vandana Shiva, Jane Goodall, etc.), great animation and telling you the truth about who controls seeds around the world which is often hidden nowadays. It will open your eyes and mind: communities need to be the owner of seeds not corporations.

"If you're relying someone else for your seed, it's like you're relying on someone else for your soul."
