March 8th - SEED: The Untold Story at Clinton Street Theater
On Thursday, March 8th, Cultivate Oregon and KBOO will be hosting a showing of SEED: THE UNTOLD STORY at the Clinton Street Theater in Portland.
Join us after the show for a discussion with the Film Directors and folks from the Pollinator Collective, Cultivate Oregon, and other local organizations.
Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds. Worshipped 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. -www.seedthemovie.com
