Songs of Seeds

in production


Songs of Seeds is a lyrical and intimate portrait of the rice farmers and seeds of the globally important agricultural heritage system of Kuttanad, Kerala; a culture and community at a crossroads. 

As Executive Producer to the upcoming film Basmati Blues, the directoral debut of Danny Baron, Ruedi Gerber finds himself in Kerala. Fascinated by the real side of this fictional story, he starts exploring the lives of the farmers and the state of their seed production. While the threat of GMO looms in this area, this film turns the lens on the farmers to give them a voice.
