One of the world's most precious resources is at risk. This timely and emotionally moving film illuminates what is at stake and what can be done to protect the source of nearly all of our food: SEEDS.

Seeds provide the basis for everything from food, to fabric to fuels. Seeds are as essential to life as the air we breathe or water we drink...but given far less attention. Over the past one hundred years seeds have shifted from being common heritage to sovereign property.

This film tells the story of seeds by following the challenges and triumphs of some of their most tireless stewards and advocates.

Special features include: extended interview with Vandana Shiva, interview with Sean Kaminsky, Bill McDorman, Isaura Andaluz, Tomato Seed Saving 101 and more!

“A touching and spiritual film that will no doubt encourage discussion about the future of agriculture…” - Yes! Magazine

“It unlocks the door to the magical, powerful, and perilous world of seeds. It will open hearts and minds.” - Claire Hope Cummings, award winning author of: "Uncertain Peril, Genetic Engineering and the Future of Seeds"

“This film is a seed in its own right and can play a seminal role in planting ideas that bring together food sovereignty, human rights and the consumer right to know - exactly the ‘big tent’ we need to win this issue.” - Wayne Roberts, Former Manager, Toronto Food Policy Council

“Seeds are profound, holy, beautiful, and generous. Meet the seeds and the inspired heroes who love and protect them in this marvelous film journey.” - Jeffrey M. Smith, Executive Director, Institute for Responsible Technology

    世界で最も貴重なある天然資源は今リスクの危機にあります。このタイムリーで感動的に涙ぐましいドキュメンタリー映画は食べ物の源である種がどのような危機にもたらしているのか、また、その危機からどうのようにして救えば良いのかが描かれています。

    布から食品から燃料、ありとあらゆるものの源であるのが種です。種は私たちが吸う空気や飲む水と同じぐらい必要不可欠ですが、同様な立場は私たちは種に与えていません。

    FAO(国際連合食糧農業機関、国連の専門機関の一つ)によれば、100年前に存在したおよそ90%のフルーツや野菜の種は今は存在しません。昔あった穀物は今絶滅にほど近い状態にいます。何十年も育まれた種はもう失いかけています。

    種の生物多様性により害虫や気候変動に対応する新しい品種が生まれます。気候変動が激しいほど、これが必要になります。

    大企業は特許法を元に、種の遺伝学を隠しています。昔は種は公共のものでした。飲み水や吸う空気のように、種を分け合いました。しかし、100年ぐらい前から...
