Synopsis: 10 years after the death of Joseph Ltzenberger, known as the father of Brazilian movement for the environment. Seeds of Freedom tells the story of seeds, from its roots in the heart of traditional and diverse farming systems around the world, to its transformation into a powerful convenience, used to monopolize the global food system.
The film highlights the extent to which the system of industrial agriculture and genetically modified seeds in particular have impacted the huge agro-biodiversity evolved by farmers and communities around the world, from the beginning of agriculture.
Seeds of Liberty seeks to challenge the mantra that large-scale, industrial agriculture is the only means by which we can feed the world, promoted by the pro-GM group. In tracking the history of the seed, is clearly seen as the agenda of companies has led to the takeover of the seeds in order to obtain vast profits and control over the global food system.
