“Seed is not just the source of life. It is the very foundation of our being.”
– Vandana Shiva

Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds. Worshipped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. 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.

Biotech chemical companies control the majority of our seeds, yet 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 features Vandana Shiva, Dr. Jane Goodall, Andrew Kimbrell, Winona Laduke and Raj Patel.
