    Country: USA
    Runtime: 94 min

    Start time: 4:30pm
    Rated: PG (no membership needed)

    Seeds are life itself traveling across generations of farmers. Yet within a century, humanity lost 94% of its seed varieties. Under the spell of industrial "progress", seed diversity has been dwindled down to a handful of mass-produced strains. Irish history may already be repeating itself on a global scale. Today, ten agrochemical companies control more than two-thirds of the global seed market. If farmers attempt to save their own modified seeds at the end of the season, they face ruthless prosecution.

    People everywhere are waking up to the vital importance of seeds. Rallies are gathering millions, while initiatives are being taken to label genetically modified foods. Seed libraries, community gardens, and a new generation of passionate young farmers are cropping up to shift the balance toward a more sustainable and sovereign seed paradigm.
