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 percent 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 heroes rekindle a lost connection to our most treasured resource and revive a culture connected to seeds.

Good, but I didn't think it was the greatest. The best part was that it conveyed a crucially important message, and a warning to us all. Just imagine a world where the vast majority of our food came from a handful of genetic sources, all of them owned by huge corporations. I guess that's when it will be pretty much over for civilization as we know it. The truly scary thing is that we are already perilously close to this reality.

Weaknesses included:
-parts of it were little more than an anti-Monsanto rant.
-some of the contributors were a little more than over-the-top.

Monsanto and all government employees working with them should all go to jail!

Excellent! Every man woman and child should see the documentary. GMO's & pesticides are ruining our planet. Was shocked to see some places in Hawaii residents have to wear gas masks because of the contaminated soil blowing in the wind from test plots. School children are taken to hospitals when pesticide spray drifts to their schools. It's not right our government allowed Monsanto to patent their GMO seeds. Farmers are being sued by Monsanto when they try to use their own seed for replanting. Please watch bonus features and extra scenes,
