Dear Friends of Queen of the Sun,
As important as the bees, are our seeds. And the two are deeply interconnected.
We are very excited that Academy-Award winning actress Marisa Tomei, an advocate for humanitarian causes and the importance of healthy food, has joined us as Executive Producer for our new documentary, SEED! After watching QUEEN OF THE SUN, Marisa contacted us out of the blue and asked us how she could help. Weâ€™re so honored to have Marisaâ€™s passionate support. We are working together to help bring SEED to a wider audience.
Marisa shares her passion for seeds in our new Kickstarter video for our FINAL PUSH to bring SEED to completion. This is a brand-new SEED movie trailer, and weâ€™re thrilled to share it with you!
In the past hundred years, 94% percent of our seed diversity has been lost.
SEED: The Untold Story, a feature-length documentary film, tells the harrowing and heartening story of humansâ€™ 12,000-year relationship with seeds. As many irreplaceable seeds are nearing extinction, SEED unveils a David and Goliath battle for their future. The film follows an absorbing journey into â€œdoomsdayâ€ seed vaults, the colorful dedication of seed savers, and the world of indigenous tribes, who strive to protect our sacred seed ancestry. SEED celebrates the mystery, power and essential nature of seeds. Entertaining and engaging, SEED will ignite the imagination of audiences, inspiring them to be part of a brave new movement dedicated to safeguarding our worldâ€™s sustainable future.

We want this film to be amazing. The seed movement deserves no less.â€¨â€¨ Every dollar contributed here is deeply appreciated. Kickstarter is all or nothing. This means that to receive the money pledged we must meet our funding goal within the funding period.
Let’s gather together to create an inspiring, uplifting film.
Taggart, Jon and the SEED Team
