Saturday Short

Seed is not just the source of life. It is
the very foundation of our being.

Today's short is the trailer for SEED: The Untold Story (Collective Eye Films, 2016). Directed and produced by Taggart Siegel and Jon Betz, the film examines how and why we have lost in the last century 94 percent of our seed varieties, and what is being done by scientists, farmers, and indigenous seed-keepers to revive a culture connected to seeds.

The feature-length documentary, which has won awards at numerous film festivals where it has been screened, features primatologist and anthropologist Dr. Jane Goodall, Andrew Kimbrell of the Center for Food Safety, and American activist, environmentalist, economist, and writer Winona LaDuke, who is the program director of Honor the Earth.

See the screening schedule at the film's Website ("See the Film") for upcoming showings. The documentary is in theaters throughout the United States and Canada. Its world premiere was at the Environmental Film Festival in Washington, D.C., this past March.
