Cinematheque at Home: From Seed to Seed

Held over! Plays May 15 - June 5
Directed by Katharina Stieffenhofer
2018, Canada, 87 min

Check out our livestream Q&A with director Katharina Stieffenhofer on our Facebook page.

In Southern Manitoba, Terry and Monique are pouring their hearts into a small, ecological farm. In love with the land, their methods are derived from generations of farming tradition, along with the best current knowledge of organic farming. Raising crops and several types of livestock, they struggle mightily against a foe their agricultural predecessors never anticipated; global climate change.

Depicting large as well as small operations, the film shows what farmers are up against, and how determined many are to adopt environmentally responsible strategies, despite the seductive conveniences of modern agricultural practices. Through one setback after another, the film’s subjects display tenacity, endurance, humour and a sustaining dedication to family and community.

From Seed to Seed exemplifies the best qualities of those who farm, and provides a hopeful look at a modern movement that will prove vital in turning the tide of environmental destruction.


Cinematheque at Home – curated by the Cinematheque – will offer new theatrical releases every week which our audiences can pay to stream through our website (by clicking the ‘buy tickets’ button). This is not only an opportunity for our patrons to see new cinema, but is an important way that they can continue to support independent film during this pandemic.

Reviews

From Seed to Seed rightly illustrates how farmers can be part of the solution to our climate crisis.
