Porte Parole Productions in partnership with the McGill Office for Science and Society presents SEEDS
Before making its way into U.S. markets, SEEDS - a dramatic re-enactment about the 7-year legal battle between Saskatchewan farmer Percy Schmeiser and one of the biggest biotech corporations, Monsanto Inc. - is making a one-night return to Montreal!
Based on court trial transcripts, interviews with Percy Schmeiser, Monsanto representatives, and with farmers, academics, lawyers and scientists from all across Canada, Seeds leads us through a suspenseful labyrinth of legal conflicts around patent rights, scientific showdowns about GM food, and property clashes between farmers and the biotechnology industry. The answer to Schmeiser’s “Who owns Life?” question will determine the future of our food system.
On February 29 join Porte Parole Productions and the McGill Office for Science and Society for a presentation of SEEDS, followed by a Q&A after the show with playwright Annabel Soutar, actor Eric Peterson, and Dr. Joe Schwarcz.
Tickets are now on sale through the box office website.
