Α SEED FOR CHANGE

 

A Seed for Change is a my first feature length documentary, that became a landmark for food activists and international seed freedom movements, where I researched, wrote, produced, directed, shot and edited
everything on my own.

The film premiered at Thessaloniki International Film Festival on March 10, 2018, and was officially selected to be screened at the Swiss 'Festival Du Film Vert' in Lausanne and Neuchatel. It was also officially selected to be screened at the 'BIFED - Bozcaada International Festival Of Ecological DOCUMENTARY' (October 11-15) and at the 'PriMed - International Festival of Mediterranean Documentary and Reportage' (November 25 - 1 December, 2018).

Background of the Project


As a victim of the 2008 economic crisis I took on a long journey looking for alternative ways that would allow me to bypass the ugliness of the demonstrations on the streets of Athens in Greece and to reach to a viable solution for the global depression that was hitting our modern ways of life.


Before the crisis, I was doing well, working in the production field, making television commercials for international brands. As my income was fading away, I was spending most of my time just sitting there, avoiding spending any money and worrying about things that I used to take for granted, like the shrinking size of my grocery list. I got scared for not being able to sustain myself anymore.


After a long investigation it became evident that only when we are able to grow food without the need of a financial income, we will break this vicious circle of fear, and make way to transcend to another level of human experience and it all linked back to agricultural seeds and knowing how to plant those seeds using a zero input organic method to produce high quality free food that provides all the nutrients our body requires for healthy living. Thus a long journey begins, looking for agricultural seeds and the know-how for growing my own food for free – a simple individualistic solution that soon proved to be a very complex global problem, as seeds have become patented, modified, genetically locked, and in the hands of very few private companies.
