Flagstaff Community Film Night Featuring: SEED

  • Orpheum Theater 15 West Aspen Avenue Flagstaff, AZ, 86001 United States (map)

In the last century, 94% of our seed varieties have disappeared. As biotech chemical companies control the majority of our seeds, farmers, scientists, lawyers, and indigenous seed keepers fight a David and Goliath battle to defend the future of our food. In a harrowing and heartening story, these reluctant heroes rekindle a lost connection to our most treasured resource and revive a culture connected to seeds.

This exciting evening will also include a feature short film produced by STAR School elementary students, tabling by local food organizations and student groups, and an amazing group of panelists. Panelists will discuss how seed saving, biopiracy, and GMOs affect our local community. Doors open at 5:30 with programming beginning at 6:15.
Tickets must be purchase in advance to guarantee your seat!
