WINNER OF 18 FILM FESTIVAL AWARDS

SEED: THE UNTOLD STORY

Playing at the Waterbury Library on Wed, Nov. 13th, 6-8 pm

94% of our seed diversity has disappeared! Come to this provocative film* and question our “progress.”

Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds — worshiped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. This documentary follows passionate seed keepers who are protecting a 12,000 year-old food legacy. In the last century, 94% of our seed varieties have disappeared. A cadre of 10 agrichemical companies, including Syngenta, Bayer, and Monsanto, controls over two-thirds of the global seed market, reaping unprecedented profits. Farmers and others battle to defend the future of our food.

Movie followed by discussion, snacks.

*This is the first in our New Issues X-Change Series.
