Together with the IU Cinema, Wylie House and IU Libraries are pleased to sponsor the screening of this film. We recognize the importance of genetic seed diversity and contribute to the effort through the museum's heirloom gardens and seed saving program. This film documents the significance of global crop diversity and preservation.
This film follows agriculture pioneer Cary Fowler as he races against time to protect the future of our food. As climate change accelerates, world agriculture is in danger. With a passion few possess, Cary set out to build the world’s first global seed vault (Svalbard), deep inside an arctic mountain in Norway—an unprecedented insurance policy for crop diversity of the world. The film follows global gestures of support, including Peruvian potato farmers who are seeking to ensure their crops and their culture. This screening is sponsored by Wylie House Museum, IU Libraries. Agriculturist Cary Fowler is scheduled to be present for Q&A following the film.
Additional campus parterns include: Integrated Program of the Environment, School of Public Health, Biology, Human Biology, Anthropology, Office of Sustainability, the Food Institute, and Hilltop Garden and Nature Center.
