»Wild Relatives« von Jumana Manna

(Jumana Manna, DE/LB/NO 2018, 64 min)
followed by a talk with Julia Bar-Tal, Jumana Manna

»Wild Relatives« starts from an event that has sparked media interest worldwide: In 2012, an international agricultural research center was forced to relocate from Aleppo to Lebanon due to the Syrian Revolution turned war, and began a laborious process of planting their seed collection from back-up seeds of the Svalbard Global Seed Vault. At the vault, deep beneath arctic permafrost, seeds from all over the world are stored. Following the path of this transaction of seeds between the Arctic and Lebanon, a series of encounters unfold a matrix of human and non-human lives between these two distant spots of the Earth. It captures the articulation between this large-scale international initiative and its local implementation in the Bekaa Valley of Lebanon, carried out primarily by young migrant women. The meditative pace of the film patiently teases out tensions between state and individual, industrial and organic approaches to seed saving, climate change and biodiversity, witnessed through the journey of these seeds.


The film program is curated by Florian Wüst
