The Seeds War
Fighting for food independence
Are seeds a commodity or a vital resource to be shared for the benefit of Humanity like the water we drink or the air we breeze ? In the near future, farmers might lose the right to plant their own seeds. Indeed, in Europe, a regulation is emerging which will impose strict controls on the use of agricultural seeds. Behind this appropriation stand five corporations already governing half of the seeds market and looking to spread their stranglehold even further. This film travels from India to France, and even the polar circle, to unveil a silent and unknown war which outcome is critical for all of us, that of our food independence.
