Les Vues Free Film Series: From Seed to Seed
June 28, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us for our Les Vues Film Series held on the last Monday of each month starting at 6:30pm. Curated by filmmakers and enthusiasts statewide, the films range from documentaries to features focusing on various aspects of culture. Following the screenings, the guest curator conducts an open discussion with the audience.
Les Vues is a FREE event but a suggested donation of $5 is appreciated to help with screening costs.
On Monday, June 28 we will screen the documentary, From Seed to Seed. Through a group of Canadian organic farmers—both large-scale and small-scale—we experience a full growing season with all of its rewards as well as the challenges of a changing climate. When Terry and Monique left the opera to pursue their true passion—ecological, small-scale farming—their story of community and resilience took center stage. FROM SEED TO SEED follows their young family and a diverse group of farmers in Southern Manitoba, for a season of challenges and rewards. Scientists are working with these farmers using a blend of ancient traditions and cutting edge science to develop improved methods for growing food ecologically and in a changing climate. This hopeful story provides a Canadian perspective on a global social movement that regenerates the land, farming, and communities toward a healthier future for us all. Directed and written by Katharina Stieffenhofer.
Following the screening we will have a panel discussion and Q&A with local ecological experts: Marcus Decant, Kim Culotta, and Nicole Johnson.
