Reviews
Farming may seem prosaic to the uninitiated, but "Seed: The Untold Story" reveals the poetry present in the practice through its smallest element.
Kimber Myers, Los Angeles Times
A model of scientific insight, story-telling and cinematic panache that reminds us that the future of life under capitalism is guarded at best.
