Seeds of Time (2013)
Director: Sandy McLeod
77 minutes

A perfect storm is brewing as agriculture pioneer Cary Fowler races against time to protect the future of our food. Seed banks around the world are crumbling, crop failures are producing starvation and rioting, and the accelerating effects of climate change are hitting farmers globally. Communities of indigenous Peruvian farmers are already suffering those effects, as they try desperately to save over 1,500 varieties of native potato in their fields. With little time to waste, Sandy McLeod’s Seeds of Time (2013) captures both Fowler and the farmers passionate and personal journeys to possibly save the one resource the world cannot live without: seeds.
