Overview

A few years ago, filmmakers Taggart Siegel and Jon Betz read a startling article in National Geographic declaring that, over the course of the 20th century, 94% of our seed diversity disappeared from the earth. They immediately knew they’d found the final chapter to an environmental trilogy that includes Queen of the Sun: What Are the Bees Telling Us? and The Real Dirt on Farmer John.

Considering the role played by private corporations that own patents on a large proportion of our seeds, climate change and the decline of genetic diversity in our food supply, Siegel and Betz offer a revelatory account of the “living embryos” that are literally the foundation of life.
