Food on DOX. Independent filmmaker Sandy McLeod portrays agricultural pioneer Cary Fowler and his mission to create the Svalbard Global Seed Vault. Food and drinks before, during and after the film celebrate the gastronomic qualities in a selection of (not quite) forgotten crops.

A perfect storm is brewing. Agricultural pioneer Cary Fowler races against time to protect the future of our food. The foundation of agriculture is crumbling. Since the 1800′s we have lost 93% of our crop varieties. This loss of diversity which has occurred in the last 80 years has left us vulnerable to pests and diseases, climate change, and other challenges that our crops face. We see evidence of this in the newspapers articles that are becoming more frequent about crop failures that yield starvation-inspired rioting and the accelerating effects of climate change that farmers struggle with globally. But Fowler’s journey, and our own, is just beginning. From Rome to Russia and, finally, a remote island under the Arctic Circle, Fowler’s passionate and personal journey may hold the key to saving the one resource we cannot live without: our seeds.

Meet Cary Fowler, Sandy McLeod and a panel of invited researchers, farmers and food producers who share the passion for the preservation of biodiversity for the sake of the planet’s future and the pleasure of our taste buds. Join CPH:DOX and partner mad+medier for a unique food and film experience with tasty nourishment for your body and mind.
