Synopsis

In this celebration of plant biodiversity, we meet Patrice Fortier, a Quebec farmer-turned-artist who carefully preserves rare or old seeds to perpetuate new species. He literally turns his crops into art projects, with projects such as making wigs out of flowers, and will even force the hybridization of two specimens. This original and eccentric farmer conveys his passion on the subject while building up a seed bank.
