La guerre des graines by Clément Montfort and Stenka Quillet
Fighting for food independence
Are seeds a commodity or a vital resource to be shared for the benefit of Humanity like the water we drink or the air we breathe ? This film travels from India to France, and even to the polar circle, to unveil a silent and unknown war whose outcome is critical for all of us, that of our food independence.
Followed by a conference debate with the filmmaker
