Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds, but in the last century, a staggering 94% of Earth's seed varieties have disappeared, and many more are near extinction. This harrowing and heartening documentary follows passionate advocates – including farmers, scientists, and indigenous seed stewards – who are waging a David and Goliath battle against the biotech industry in order to defend a 12,000 year food legacy and protect the diversity of our agricultural heritage. Director Taggart Siegel and special guests in person for discussion.
