Description
"Seeds" is a dramatic re-enactment of the seven-year legal battle between Saskatchewan farmer Percy Schmeiser and one of the world’s biggest biotech corporations, Monsanto Inc. This documentary theater play leads us through a suspenseful labyrinth of legal conflicts around patent rights, scientific show-downs about GMOs and property clashes between farmers and the biotechnology industry. Based on court trial transcripts and interviews with Percy Schmeiser, Monsanto representatives, farmers, academics, lawyers and scientists from all across Canada, it attempts to answer the question of “Who owns Life?”
