The Greens Whangarei are pleased to present Seed: The Untold Story, a finalist in the Social Impact Media Awards. Their aim is to inspire discussion and people to take local action.
Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds. Worshiped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. This documentary follows passionate seed keepers who are protecting a 12,000 year-old food legacy.
In the last century, 94 seed varieties have disappeared. A cadre of 10 agrichemical companies, including Syngenta, Bayer, and Monsanto, controls over two-thirds of the global seed market, reaping unprecedented profits.
