SEED: The Untold Story
Film Synopsis: Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds — worshipped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. This documentary follows passionate seed keepers who are protecting a 12,000 year-old food legacy. In the last century, 94 seed varieties have disappeared. A cadre of 10 agrichemical companies, including Syngenta, Bayer, and Monsanto, controls over two-thirds of the global seed market, reaping unprecedented profits. Farmers and others battle to defend the future of our food.
There will be a Q&A after the film with Bill McDorman the Executive Director of the Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance that is featured in the film.
Event proceeds will support organic seed savers in the Philippines!
Venue: Posner Center - Commons
