The Story of SeedsStreaming Video - 2014
Open Sesame: The Story of Seeds illuminates what is at stake in the conflict between hybrid and open-pollinated seed systems. Providing the basis for everything from fabric to food to fuels, seeds are as essential to life as the air we breathe and the water we drink. In the past, seeds were communal - a shared resource not unlike the water we drink. A century ago things started to change. Now large corporations claim seeds as intellectual property, restricting their use and interfering with the livelihoods of open-pollination farmers. This documentary introduces a range of individuals whose lives center around seeds. Farmers, renegade gardeners, passionate seed savers, artists, and activists all work to plant the seeds of information and inspiration within this film.
