Academy Award-winner and Executive Producer Marisa Tomei is on hand to present SEED: The Untold Story

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. 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 features Vandana Shiva, Dr. Jane Goodall, Andrew Kimbrell, Winona Laduke and Raj Patel.

“The most essential, illuminating and enraging film since Food, Inc. “ -NYC Movie Guru 

“This is a gorgeously made film, put together with as much care as it’s subjects devote to saving the remaining varieties of seeds.” -L.A. Times 

“A rare documentary from filmmakers who are not just capable but also in love with their craft. It’s a wonder of photography, animation, and sound, and it’s a testament to its editors that the many interviews with activists and scientists are compelling and informative, sometimes even poetic.” -Village Voice 

“The frightening beauty of Seed is the clarity with which it defines the mission of seedsavers -- maintaining agricultural diversity for future generations, whatever the world they inherit; it's bluntly persuasive.” -Film Journal International 

“A boldly creative and ethically robust documentary about protecting the food supply.” -Spirituality and Practice 

“An eco-doc centered on the glories of diversity in the world's population of edible plants, SEED: The Untold Story contains just enough gourmet touches to draw foodies into the audience alongside the usual environmentalist crowd.” -Hollywood Reporter
