Modern agriculture has changed more in our lives than in the last 10,000 years.
While this change has been rapid, it has not always been in the best interest of our land or humanity.
FMTV's most recent film, "Seeds of Freedom", tells how seeds and agriculture have changed throughout the history of humanity. In the first days, the seeds were fundamental for traditional agriculture, biodiversity, food independence and culture …
Today is a different story
In the modern food supply, seeds are a powerful product that remains in the hands of a few. This power effectively monopolizes the global food system, leaving our food supply at the mercy of companies that value first the final profitability, and sustainable food systems in second place, if they do.
This documentary takes us deeply into the corruption of the modern agricultural industry. In particular, "Seeds of Freedom" shows us how genetically modified (GM) seeds have destroyed agricultural communities around the world. It was also deeply disturbing to know how these transgenic seeds are undermining agrobiodiversity.
We often hear the pro-GM mantra that industrial agriculture is our only hope to feed the world. This film challenges the assumption driven by companies and offers us an alternative perspective for a possible global food system that is not controlled by agribusiness for profit.
What impressed me the most about this movie?
I was surprised at how much this film takes him face to face with the consequences of transgenic agriculture on large scales and micro levels.
At a basic level, it is not necessary to be a farmer to empathize with the suffering that modern agriculture has inflicted on indigenous communities around the world. Through interviews with experts and the voices of African farmers, this film shows how the loss of seed reserves affects biodiversity, agricultural knowledge, cultural traditions and community livelihoods.
On a larger scale, GM crops pose a threat to all of us. But there is hope. There's another way. Discover the solution, be part of it even.
