This special screening of Seed: The Untold Story is sponsored by The Springfield Community Gardens. Springfield Community Gardens helps hard-working people grow their own healthy, affordable food and connects neighbors and families as community members work side-by-side.
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 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.
"This is a gorgeously made film, put together with as much care as its subjects devote to saving the remaining varieties of seeds."- Kimber Myers, Los Angeles Times
"Seed: The Untold Story is the rare documentary from filmmakers who are not just capable but also in love with their craft. It's a wonder of photography, animation, and sound, and it's a testament to its editors that the many interviews with activists and scientists are compelling and informative, sometimes even poetic."- Daphne Howland, Village Voice
"Farming may seem prosaic to the uninitiated, but "Seed: The Untold Story" reveals the poetry present in the practice through its smallest element."- Kimber Myers, Los Angeles Times
"An eco-doc centered on the glories of diversity in the world's population of edible plants, Seed: The Untold Story contains just enough gourmet touches to draw foodies into the audience alongside the usual environmentalist crowd."- John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
