As part of Global Week, on Thurs 22nd Feb (5pm – 7pm) there will be a free film screening of SEED: the untold story. Winner of several awards such as Best Documentary, Best Environmental Film, Green Planet Awards, this film carries strong reviews “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

Synopsis: ‘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’
