WILD RELATIVES

  • Arab American National Museum 13624 Michigan Avenue Dearborn, MI 48126 (map)

Before the screening, there will be a seed swap led by American Indian Health & Family Services and Dearborn Public Library. A talkback will follow the film.

Deep beneath Earth’s Arctic permafrost, seeds from all over the world are stored in the Svalbard Global Seed Vault. For the first time ever, seeds from a major gene bank in Aleppo are now being replicated in the Beqaa Valley. Wild Relatives loosely links together different narratives and biographies, opening a space to reflect on biodiversity, resilience, global justice and climate change, as well as manmade disasters and the ambivalent efforts made to overcome them.
