Movie Screening “SEED: The Untold Story” – Nov. 10
Ruff’ton Roots and Dreaming Stone Arts and Ecology Center are co-sponsoring a movie screening of Seed: The Untold Story.
“Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds. Worshipped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. In the last century, 94% of our seed varieties have disappeared. SEED: The Untold Story follows passionate seed keepers protecting our 12,000 year-old food legacy. 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 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.
SEED is Executive Produced by Academy Award Winning Actress Marisa Tomei, Marc Turtletaub (Little Miss Sunshine) and Phil Fairclough (Grizzly Man, Cave of Forgotten Dreams).
“Seed is not just the source of life. It is the very foundation of our being.”
– Vandana Shiva
Movie Showing starts at 6:00 pm along with refreshments provided by DSAEC & Ruff’ton Roots
