Our Seeds (2008)

"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.

French, Chinese, Japanese and Portuguese subtitles.
