Special Earth Day Screening of Open Sesame




A special screening of Open Sesame- The Story of Seeds, is showing Tuesday, April 22, at 7:30pm at Union Square Stadium Theater in New York City. This Earth Day event features an informal seed swap and a Q&A with OSGATA President and Maine organic seed farmer Jim Gerritsen, Ken Greene from the Hudson Valley Seed Library, and award-winning filmmaker Sean Kaminsky.

Open Sesame, from Open Pollinated Productions, is a groundbreaking film with a mission: to raise awareness about the issues affecting seed on a global scale and how these issues, in turn, impact our food supply. The film features renowned environmental activist Vandana Shiva and many other of the greatest seed savers, organic farmers, and activists of our time.

Be among the first to watch this film and join in the Q&A afterward. If you’re a seed saver, remember to bring some to share!

Tickets must be purchased online in advance.
