The filmmakers behind THE REAL DIRT ON FARMER JOHN and THE QUEEN OF THE SON return with another environmental fable, SEED: THE UNTOLD STORY.

In the last century, 94% of vegetable seed varieties have disappeared, leaving our food supply dangerously vulnerable to blight and famine. While biotech chemical companies control the majority of our seeds, thankfully, an inspiring ensemble of farmers, scientists, and seed savers are fighting a David and Goliath battle to defend the future of our food and protect our 12,000 year-old food legacy.  SEED tells their harrowing and heartening story – and the larger history of human agriculture – with equal parts whimsy and rage. -Chris Metzler
