Seeds of Time


"Very powerful... it's fascinating... you wouldn't think that something like seeds would be that compelling, but it is and it's really important."

- Claudia Puig, USA Today / 89.3 KPCC




"'Seeds of Time' offers a vital, clear-headed look at the effects of climate change on global food security"

- The Los Angeles Times 




"This is a documentary you cannot afford to miss."

- Criterion Cast




"The urgency of expanding the world’s seed portfolio is made eminently clear"

- The New York Times





"A commanding call to action"

"I never imagined that a film about diversity would land one of the top three films of SXSW"

- Austin Indie Film Examiner





The Hollywood Reporter




"Seeds of Time stands out as truly exceptional. It's about an issue less prominent in the public dialogue but of universal's just riveting filmmaking, a story swiftly and beautifully told."

- Margaret Mead Film Festival




 "The documentary directed by Sandy McLeod, is a portrait of Fowler, - one that also provides an object lesson in what it looks like to search for genuine solutions."

- Grist
