Background to the film

SEED: The Untold Story is an award winning documentary about the dramatic loss of seed diversity and the future of our food, from the filmmakers behind Queen of the Sun: What are the Bees Telling Us? The film features Vandana Shiva, Dr. Jane Goodall, Andrew Kimbrell, and Winona LaDuke.

In the last century, 94% of our seed varieties have disappeared. As biotech 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.

SEED is executive produced by Marisa Tomei, Marc Turtletaub (Little Miss Sunshine), and Phil Fairclough (Grizzly Man, Cave of Forgotten Dreams).
