Seeds of Time


Thursday, October 23, 2014
7:15 pm - 9:15 pm


Gene banks are crumbling, crops are failing, and the effects of climate change are felt by farmers around the world. But agricultural pioneer Cary Fowler is racing against time to preserve crop diversity and protect the future of our food. His one-man mission to solve a global crisis takes him from Rome to Russia and, finally, to a remote Arctic island that may hold the key to saving our seeds—and ultimately our species. This beautiful film by filmmaker Sandy McCleod is both a call to action and a provocative essay on the essence of diversity.

Q&A filmmaker Sandy McLeod and film subject Cary Fowler with JBFC Programming Director Brian Ackerman
