The Story of Seeds
Official film description
One of the world's most precious resources is at risk. This film illuminates what is at stake and what can be done to protect the source of nearly all of 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.
Over the past one hundred years seeds have shifted from being common heritage to sovereign property. This film tells the story of seeds by following the challenges and triumphs of some of their stewards and advocates.
