Open Sesame: The Story of Seeds

Open Sesame: The Story of Seeds

Presented by Utah Film Center at Salt Lake City Public Library Main Branch

One of the world’s most precious resources is at risk. This timely and emotionally moving documentary illuminates what is at stake and what can be done to protect the source of nearly all food: SEEDS. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO), approximately 90% of the fruit and vegetable varieties that existed 100 years ago no longer exist today. Heritage grain is near extinction. Seeds that were lovingly nurtured over decades or even hundreds of years have been lost forever. Maintaining seed biodiversity allows us to breed new varieties that are resistant to pests or thrive in temperature extremes. This is essential in a changing climate.
