Environment & Ecology

This short documentary co-produced by Neil Young tells the story of Michael White, a fourth generation farmer, who went toe to toe with Monsanto.

Wayne White of Alabama was the oldest farmer to be sued for the timeworn farming practice of saving seeds. In this modern day David and Goliath story, emotionally retold by Wayne’s son Michael, the Whites beat agriculture giant Monsanto in court. This powerful short documentary offers a lesson in the twisting of intellectual property laws and the ultimate delivery of justice.
