Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds. Worshiped 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. SEED features Vandana Shiva, Dr. Jane Goodall, Andrew Kimbrell, Winona Laduke and Raj Patel.

This showing is a benefit for SYRCL’s Wild & Scenic Film Festival, which runs Jan. 12-16, 2017 and is presented in partnership with the Nevada Theater Film Series.

Advance tickets are $9.00 and are available ONLINE or at the BriarPatch Co-Op; $12.00 at the door.
