Seeds of Time @ The Deconstructing Film Festival (Nov 4)
INTIMATE LIMITED-SEATING ENGAGEMENT W/LIVE MUSIC FROM DAWNA MCLELLAN (HARP) & JESSICA DOERNER (CELLO), plus goodie bags from West Coast Seeds
(USA, 2015, 77min) - A perfect storm is brewing as agriculture pioneer Cary Fowler races against time to protect the future of our food. Seed banks around the world are crumbling, crop failures are producing starvation and rioting, and the accelerating effects of climate change are affecting farmers globally. Communities of indigenous Peruvian farmers are already suffering those effects, as they try desperately to save over 1,500 varieties of native potato in their fields. But with little time to waste, both Fowler and the farmers embark on passionate and personal journeys that may save the one resource we cannot live without: our seeds.
Dawna McLellan & Jessica Doerner of HarpPixie Trio - Enjoy the sounds of harp and cello to introduce this film and stick around for a longer performance to follow.
