‘Our Seeds: Seeds Blong Yumi’ Documentary

The Seed Saver’s Network has been fighting a David and Goliath battle since 1986 when Jude and Michel Fanton created the non-profit organisation whose main aim is to conserve and share locally adapted varieties of food plants.

More than ever, as climate change and unpredictable weather patterns loom, we need to preserve a genetically diverse genepool of food plants to be able to adapt to these conditions. Commercial agriculture and the modern food system favour a small range of food plants that require high inputs of fertilisers and chemical pesticides and that are selected mainly for productivity, shelf life and appearance.

‘Our Seeds: Seeds Blong Yumi’ is a 57 min documentary which looks at the issue of the need to preserve the diverse food heritage from Melanesian and other countries as they become increasingly reliant on imports of hybrid seeds and white rice, biscuits and noodles. The film also looks into the solutions such as setting up local seed networks and education of the importance of preserving diversity.

Burping Bovidae Documentary (2006)

A 24 min. documentary by New Zealand Filmmakers Kat Gawlik & Sonya Walker

Global Warming and Climate Change have become, literally, the hot topics of the 21st Century. New Zealand sells itself with its “100% Pure” image: we are supposedly clean and green. However, one of the most significant contributors to global warming is methane gas – and with millions of sheep and cows, New Zealand is a veritable methane gas factory. As this film shows in its Monty Pythonesque way: we may not have obvious great smoke stacks spewing out pollutants, but we have bovine digestive tracts that are equally insidious. “Silent but violent” takes on a whole new meaning in this film that is as much fun as it is serious.
