A perfect storm is brewing as agriculture pioneer Cary Fowler races to protect the future of our food. Seed banks around the world are crumbling, crop failures are producing starvation and riots, and the accelerating effects of climate change are affecting farmers globally. Communities of Peruvian farmers try desperately to save over 1,500 varieties of native potato in their fields. With no time to waste, they begin passionate and personal journeys that may save the one resource we cannot live without: our seeds.
SEEDS OF TIME documents all of this. We open the film at the Music Hall on Friday, May 29. Filmmaker Sandy McLeod and Cary Fowler, the film’s subject, will appear in person for Q&A’s after the 7 PM screenings at the Music Hall on Friday, May 29 and Saturday, May 30.
