"16 Seeds" (documentary short) examines the roles that people of color play in the struggle for food justice, from a community organizer's journey of increasing the visibility of black farmers to the groundwork of an elder seeking to preserve family traditions.

Focused on three individuals - Gail, Mia, and Mickey, living in Oakland and San Francisco's Bayview district, this film positions them at the forefront of the movement in their communities to reclaim food and our connections to it.

From harvesting beans to selling plants at farmer's markets, the work of reconnecting people to their food is never done, especially in black communities where food deserts, not choice, have been the rule for too many years.
