SEEDS
by Annabel Soutar

An unflinching look at the reality of 21st Century farming and life. In 1998, Percy Schmeiser, a Saskatchewan farmer, was accused of planting patented genetically modified seeds on his land by Monsanto, a major agriculture corporation. In 2004, the case was taken to the Supreme Court of Canada, ruling in favour of Monsanto. A true David vs. Goliath story starring Eric Peterson (Corner Gas), Seeds carefully presents the situation using actual court transcripts in a docudrama that looks at life within the context of business, philosophy and biotechnology.
