SEED: The Untold Story

Date: Friday, October 7, 2016

Showtime: 7:00 pm

Price: $11 - $12

In the last century, 94% of our seed varieties have disappeared. As biotech chemical companies control the majority of seeds, farmers, scientists, lawyers and indigenous seed keepers fight a David and Goliath battle to defend the future of our food. This fascinating feature-length documentary follows passionate seed keepers protecting our 12,000-year old food legacy, while also examining issues surrounding the loss of seed diversity, climate change, pesticides, GMO labeling and the patenting and corporate takeover of seeds and food.

 

Produced by Marisa Tomei’s Seneca Falls Picture House, Marc Turtletaub (Little Miss Sunshine) and Phil Fairclough (Grizzly Man, Cave of Forgotten Dreams), SEED is a

Collective Eye Films production. A non-profit media organization based in Portland and San Francisco, Collective Eye Films is an educational film distribution and production company that presents compelling documentaries exploring the untold stories of our time.

 

Inland Northwest Land Conservancy is delighted to bring this unique showing to the historical Bing Crosby Theater in downtown Spokane. It is a natural extension of our work to inspire our community members to be informed about their environment and how it affects their overall health.

 

All ages welcome for this family fun event.

 

Doors open at 6:00 PM for 7:00 PM showing.
