SEED: The Untold Story

Gesa Power House Theatre presents the Walla Walla premiere of "SEED: The Untold Story" on Wednesday, March 29, at 7:00 p.m. The film's co-director and co-producer Jon Betz, a Walla Walla native, will attend the screening and participate in a talkback session afterwards.

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 film features Vandana Shiva, Dr. Jane Goodall, Andrew Kimbrell, Winona Laduke and Raj Patel.
