January 6, 2017, 7:00pm - January 7, 2017, 10:00pm

We are so excited for the SANDPOINT PREMIERE of the award-winning SEED: The Untold Story at the Panida Theatre on 1/6-1/7 Help spread the word: ______ Film Synopsis: From the creators of the award winning Queen of the Sun: What Are the Bees Telling Us? and The Real Dirt on Farmer John comes SEED: The Untold Story. Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds, worshiped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. Award winning documentary, 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. SEED features Vandana Shiva, Dr. Jane Goodall, Andrew Kimbrell, Winona Laduke and Raj Patel. SEED: The Untold Story is Executive Produced by Marisa Tomei, Marc Turtletaub (Little Miss Sunshine), and Phil Fairclough (Grizzly Man, Cave of Forgotten Dreams). Awards: Winner of the ENVIRONMENTAL AWARD at Sheffield Doc/Fest, GREEN PLANET AWARD at Rhode Island Film Festival, BEST DOCUMENTARY at Nashville Film Festival, BEST IN FESTIVAL at Princeton Environmental Film Festival, ECOHERO AWARD at the Portland EcoFilm Festival, BEST DOCUMENTARY & AUDIENCE AWARD at Lunenberg Doc Fest, HONORABLE MENTION at Cine Eco Portugal, AUDIENCE AWARD at the American Conservation Film Festival, BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY at the United Nations Film Festival & Official Selection of the BEST OF FESTS program at IDFA in Amsterdam. ________ * Watch the trailer at *
