"Our Seeds" addresses the problems of globalised food based on hybrids that require pesticides and synthetic fertilisers. The film shows how individuals and small groups have solved these problems. A celebration of the seed keepers that stand at the source of humanity's diverse food heritage.
A documentary on traditional diets and how they are grown and eaten in eleven countries: Spain, France, Italy, India, Sri Lanka, China, Vietnam, Taiwan, Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands. The film explores the relationship between traditional biodiversity and traditional culture in the wide-ranging locations and shows that there are the same problems and solutions in each of them.
It is a David and Goliath story where resilience and persuasive logic triumph over seemingly invincible corporate agribusiness.
This one hour documentary will help you if you are presenting the idea of a Local Seed Network in your region.
