Annabel Soutar: Seeds
Directed by Chris Abraham
featuring Eric Peterson
A Porte Parole (Montreal) production
This provocative docudrama – part courtroom confrontation, part social satire – sows the seeds of doubt. Centering on the four-year legal showdown between biotech giant Monsanto and Saskatchewan farmer Percy Schmeiser, the highly-acclaimed Seeds leads us through a labyrinth of political manoeuvering, patent wars, and cash-fuelled science. Seeds is about the food we eat.
Much of the text is taken verbatim from court trial transcripts, news broadcasts, and interviews with the case’s stakeholders.
