A Story of Seed Savers and Seed Defenders
SEED ACT tells the stories of the women and men that dedicate their lives and work to preserving and defending our farm seed heritage. In a world choked by restrictive laws that give precedence to the commercial and intellectual property rights of transnational companies over humanity’s historic and sacred right to freely sow, reap and exchange natural seeds, saving seeds has become a political act.
SEED ACT is an action film: aiming to study what happens in our complex world, by contributing to its change. It is an engaged documentary film, in defence of traditional seeds and in support of the work of seed savers. SEED ACT will stimulate throughout the whole project strong community engagement, by involving food sovereignty, seed saving and related campaigns and groups in the film from the start, in several countries. The film will be promoted through these groups, who may use it to raise awareness. The separate acts of SEED ACT will be distributed freely as well as through cinema or TV, if possible, to reach the widest possible audience. On our website we will publish information in an ongoing manner, about the production, but also about the characters and the issues. Supporters of the film can donate time or money to help make the project a reality.
