The Last Seed

Sunday, 3 December, 9:30 pm

Documentary, South Africa 2022, 77 min, Director: Andrea Gema English, and Swahili with English Subtitles

The Last Seed

The film focuses on broad themes relating to the state of food and agriculture in Africa in the 21st century. Placing the struggle over the control of seed at the centre, it explains the processes that have led to this moment in human history and what it would take to interact with the planet in a way that does not threaten the very basis of life on Earth.

The film raises two fundamental questions – what have we lost, and who can show us a better way? – and attempts to answer these questions using music, dance, moving visuals and the lived experiences and stories of African small-scale food producers. Experts outline the extent of the corporate capture crisis, explaining the underlying science, politics and economics in simple terms, punctuated by vibrant animations. Agroecological farmers from various African nations give testimony on the sustainability and adaptability of their agricultural practices and share morsels of wisdom worth exploring. The film ends on an upbeat note as Senegalese women rise up, determined to protect their seeds and indigenous knowledge for future generations.

EthnoKino Film Festival 2023

2–5 December

EthnoKino Film Festival 2023

Dedicated to visionaries and pioneering storytellers across the globe, we are an international action community of practice, working towards systemic change through the power of authentic and meaningful storytelling. Our catalytic home cinema of the commons and commoning film practices intend to co-create a nourishing influential mov(i)ement for societal cohesion and to enact integral transformation for deep planetary impact.

In 2023 we designate the EthnoKino film festival’s theme as “resilient”. We explore how human beings around the world interpret and manifest resilience. The various ways they resist, disobey and practice strength and hope in the face of adversity, challenges and injustices. From forcefully displaced populations to those born strangers to their own communities, those change-makers transforming and transcending the societies they are part of; through social initiatives, educational projects, co-creative engagements of art and poetry, and other interventions, we will explore what resilience means in its full humanity and wholeness.

Overall, in a world of immense interactions and global technological advancements, accompanied by unprecedented movements, colonialism, climate change, war and conflicts, we will look and continue to create inspiring stories addressing the world’s biggest problems in search of solutions to planetary challenges.
