 SEED: The Untold Story Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds, worshiped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. This documentary follows passionate seed keepers protecting our 12,000 year-old food legacy. In the last century, 94% of our seed varieties have disappeared, as biotech chemical companies control the majority of our seeds.  

Queen of the Sun: What are the bees telling us? QUEEN takes us on a journey through the catastrophic disappearance of bees and the mysterious world of the beehive. This ultimately uplifting film weaves the an unusual and dramatic story of the struggles of beekeepers, as told by them as well as scientists and philosophers from around the world. 

Modified features the story of filmmaker Aube Giroux and her mother as they embark on a personal and investigative journey to find out why genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are not labeled on food products in the United States and Canada, despite being labeled in 64 countries around the world.
