Documentary: Seeds of Sovereignty

Seeds of Sovereignty shows that farmers around the world have saved and bred an unimaginable wealth of seed diversity to meet their many different challenges, but as corporate seed and chemicals replace farmers’ own ingenuity, this diversity is steadily disappearing. Reviving farmers’ in-depth knowledge of how to save and adapt seed is critical, and the film is aimed to encourage others to do so by setting out the key stages in this process.
Through interviews and stunning cinematography from across the continent, the 35-minute film unpacks an approach aligned to the principles of the growing global food sovereignty movement and provides a guide for anyone looking to revive traditional, diversity rich, seed and farming systems around the world.
Seeds of Sovereignty is the follow-up to the 2012 film Seeds of Freedom, narrated by British actor Jeremy Irons. Seeds of Freedom challenged the global corporate agenda to control and monopolise the food and farming sector, most particularly through genetically modified seed. It has achieved global success and is used by anti-GM campaigners across the globe.

Momondo did an infographic of 40 coffee drinks around the world. I first discovered a French version on their website, and a few days after I had published the link, I received this amazing English version of “40 coffees to try in 29 countries” from Lucie, their Digital Marketing Executive for French Markets.
