According to the website, "Seed Hunter will take you on a remarkable journey from the drought ravaged farms of Australia, to the heart of the Middle East, to the mountains of Tajikistan where charismatic Australian scientist Dr Ken Street – a real life version of Indiana Jones – and his team of ‘gene detectives’ hunt for plant genes that will help our food withstand the impact of 21st century global warming."

Here is the trailer. I want to see this now:

If you're interested, you can purchase this DVD or even see the film in person. It is playing at the Environmental Film Festival, in Washington DC, on March 20th.
