Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds. Worshipped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. SEED: The Untold Story follows passionate seed keepers protecting our 12,000 year-old food legacy. In the last century, 94% of our seed varieties have disappeared. As biotech chemical companies control the majority of our seeds, farmers, scientists, lawyers, and indigenous seed keepers fight a David and Goliath battle to defend the future of our food. In a harrowing and heartening story, these reluctant heroes rekindle a lost connection to our most treasured resource and revive a culture connected to seeds.

The intention behind The Big Picture: Inspiration for our times is to offer films that inspire us and to connect with each other through the shared experience of being moved by what we see, and through this to build connection and community to support us in our lives and to encourage us together to find new ways to live, be, act which are in alignment with and help to contribute to the co-creation of the more beautiful sustainable just and fulfilling world we wish to live in.

Cost: Suggested minimum donation of R 80-100 but pay what you can afford. All proceeds go to charity.
