February 29 @ 7:00 pm

Seeds returns to Montreal for one night only before touring for the first time this March in the U.S.!

Seeds is a dramatic re-enactment of the 7-year legal battle between Saskatchewan farmer Percy Schmeiser and one of the biggest biotech corporations, Monsanto Inc. While debates about GMOs are multiplying everywhere, life-changing experiments are being conducted in the food we eat…

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.


Porte Parole in partnership with the McGill Office for Science and Society (OSS) present this special performance of the documentary play Seeds followed by a discussion with Annabel Soutar Co-founder, Executive Director and Artistic Director of Porte Parole, Dr. Joe Schwarcz, Director of the OSS, and Eric Peterson, Canadian actor and Member of the Order of Canada.
