We're thrilled to release the trailer for a NEW film, "SEEDS OF FREEDOM", to be launched in 2012 with our partner the African Biodiversity Network. The film shows that global agriculture has changed more in the past 50 years than in the previous 10,000. Great conflicts have arisen as a result of this, but nowhere is this conflict more poignant than in the story of seed. The film explores the history of the corporate takeover of seed, and the impact that this is having on communities across the world. The loss of indigenous seed goes hand in hand with the loss of biodiversity, the loss of cultural traditions and practices, the loss of livelihoods and the loss of independence in agriculture.
