FREE Film Screening: Seeds of Time

UTS Library is hosting a FREE film screening in partnership with UTS: SOUL Award and UTS: Green as part of Green Week 2015. The film, Seeds of Time, is directed by Sandy McLeod and ties into the theme of this year’s Green Week – managing the planet’s natural resources sustainably. 

Synopsis:

A perfect storm is brewing as agriculture pioneer Cary Fowler races against time to protect the future of our food. Seed banks around the world are crumbling, crop failures are producing starvation and rioting, and the accelerating effects of climate change are affecting farmers globally. Communities of indigenous Peruvian farmers are already suffering those effects, as they try desperately to save over 1,500 varieties of native potato in their fields. But with little time to waste, both Fowler and the farmers embark on passionate and personal journeys that may save the one resource we cannot live without: our seeds.

There will be a brief discussion after the film.
