The Last Seed is the important, timely and visually stunning documentary feature film about the struggle for control of seed in Africa. The film exposes the far-reaching and devastating consequences of the corporate control of farmer seed and our food system.
The Last Seed was produced by Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung in association with Biowatch South Africa, the Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa (AFSA) and PELUM Tanzania. In this award-winning film, small-scale food producers, agroecology farmers, experts and activists from South Africa, Senegal and Tanzania talk about the sustainability and adaptability of their farming practices as they advocate for seed sovereignty on the African continent.
Biowatch’s Vanessa Black and agroecology farmers in northern KwaZulu-Natal feature in the film, as does Bonakude’s Mvu Ngcoya, a Biowatch Trustee. Spotlighting the growing threat to Farmers’ Rights, seed and food sovereignty, soil health and biodiversity, they defend and show evidence for agroecology as a culturally-aligned, nature-aligned and climate resilient alternative to industrial agriculture, chemical poisons and corporate control.
The Last Seed has already won several awards at local and international film festivals and will soon be available on streaming services and for public viewing.
