SEED: The Untold Story, a feature-length documentary film, tells the harrowing and heartening story of humans’ 12,000-year relationship with seeds. As many irreplaceable seeds are nearing extinction, SEED unveils a David and Goliath battle for their future. The film follows an absorbing journey into “doomsday” seed vaults, the colorful dedication of seed savers, and the world of indigenous tribes, who strive to protect our sacred seed ancestry. SEED celebrates the mystery, power and essential nature of seeds. Entertaining and engaging, SEED will ignite the imagination of audiences, inspiring them to be part of a brave new movement dedicated to safeguarding our world’s sustainable future.
The beauty of the seed is out of one you can get millions. The beauty of the pollinator is that it turns that one into the millions. – Vandana Shiva
Vandana Shiva’s above quote inspired us to make SEED. This will be the third film in a trilogy that began with our award-winning films Real Dirt On Farmer John & Queen of the Sun. These films explore our fundamental connection to the natural world and how seeds, pollinators and small family farmers are all endangered.
Academy-Award Winning Actress Marisa Tomei, after seeing Queen of the Sun, was inspired to help and joined SEED as Executive Producer. She strongly believes that seeds are sacred and that they need our protection. We are honored that she is supporting this film!
