The Athena Cinema and OEFFA are thrilled to present a special screening of this important Emmy-nominated documentary!

Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds – they have been worshipped and treasured by various peoples since the dawn of humankind.

SEED: The Untold Story follows a handful of dedicated seed-keepers from around the planet who have tasked themselves with protecting our 12,000-year old food legacy. And, protection is a must – During the past century, 94% of our seed varieties have disappeared. Moreover, “Big Ag” and bio-tech firms have control of the market-share and distribution of the vast majority of seeds available to farmers, forcing scientists, lawyers, and indigenous seed-stewards into a David-and-Goliath battle to defend the future of our food.

Through this compelling and poetic story, executive produced by Marissa Tomei, SEED relates the trials and travails of often-reluctant heroes – including Vandana Shiva, Dr. Jane Goodall, Andrew Kimbrell, Winona Laduke, and Raj Patel – who strive to repair our lost connection to our most treasured resource and help a global culture centered on seeds begin to take root.

Admission is FREE and open to the public thanks to our partnership with

OEFFA (Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association)
