Seeds of Time screening at UC Davis

The Plant Breeding Center at UC Davis will be hosting a free community screening of the film Seeds of Time. This film will be of great interest to our community, particularly with so much focus on local agriculture, the centrality of UC Davis to a large portion of the seed industry in California, and many new farm-to-fork initiatives in the community.
 
This film has won several awards, namely the 2014 San Francisco Green Film Festival Audience Award, and the 2014 Portland EcoFilm Festival Best Film Award. The SXSW feature Filmmakers in Focus said: "Sandy McLeod's Seeds of Time is a prescient, troubling but gripping investigation of the future of food. It shines an eye-opening light on a looming global crisis, with great vision and a keen sense of cinema. (http://sxsw.com/film/news/2014/filmmakers-focus-double-play-and-seeds-time)"
 
This screening is open to the public, so invite your friends and family. We will meet at the Genome and Biomedical Sciences Facility Room 1005 at 6:00PM. The film is 77 minutes and will be followed by a discussion led by UC Davis’ Professor Paul Gepts, who's research and teaching program focuses on crop biodiversity and genetic resources. Registration is capped and open to the public, so sign up early.
