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 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.

"Seed: The Untold Story is the rare documentary from filmmakers who are not just capable but also in love with their craft." - Daphne Howland (Village Voice)

*Screening is presented in collaboration with the UW Havens Center for Social Justice

This event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
