A perfect storm is brewing as agriculture pioneer Cary Fowler races against time to protect the future of our food. The worldв’s gene banks are crumbling, crop failures are producing starvation-inspired rioting, and the climate change is affecting farmers globally. Fowler’s journey, and our own, is just beginning. From Rome to Russia and, finally, a remote island under the Arctic Circle, Fowler’s journey may hold the key to saving the one resource we cannot live without: our seeds. Directed by Sandy McLeod. Produced by J.D. Marlow and Emily Triantaphyllis.
Discussion with subject Cary Fowler follows screening.
