The Seed of Greed

45' (GER, ENG subs)
A deal that could spell disaster for our global farming sytem? The corporate merger between Bayer and Monsanto.

Bayer and Monsanto are geared towards creating a symbiosis among biology, technology and chemistry to aid in the progression of the agricultural industry. The aim is to make chemistry more modern and effective for cultivation with “digital farming”, where apps provide information about sowing, harvesting and the use of appropriate chemical products. Plus, the apps will sell and advertise their company products. The film assembles interviews from supporters and protestors of the merger into a cohesive narrative, enters the research labs of Monsanto and features farmers and scientists who have prior experience with seedlings and pesticides from the Monsanto group.
