  • jooley's rating of the film Seed: The Untold Story

    Another good documentary on this very significant topic, boasting cool animations and a colorful cast of interviewees. But I wasn't convinced of its scientific integrity at times, and straying from the theme of preserving seed diversity to vilify GMOs (quite wrongly conflated here with shady commercial practices and pesticide use) diluted the message. 'Seeds of Time' is a more focused alternative.
