Synopsis

The David and Goliath battle against chemical seed companies - defending a 12,000 year food legacy.
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.

Q&A with Dr. H. Schramm (Bayer AG Crop Science Division), Simon Rau (ECCHR) & Lena Michelsen (INKOTA) - Moderation: Hans Maarten van den Brink
