Overview

Seeds are not just the source of all food. They are a metaphor for survival and persistence over generations. In rural Mexico, Camilo and Ramón harvest, curate, trade and venerate varieties of maize. The dream is to cultivate not only crops, but a culture and perhaps to sustain life itself. If traditional agriculture is the most sustainable, what will happen when elders die off?
