THE FILM
Le Semeur (The Sower) by Julie Perron

Le Semeur is a documentary about Patrice. And a film for everyone, who loves vegetables, gardening, food and art. And maybe has a thing for unusual people.
Patrice likes beets, especially hardy varieties that can stand up to a strong wind. He admires independence in a plant. He looks over his carrots with the same patience and meticulousness as he harvests seeds from his squash. Sometimes, he dreams about a certain cherry tree whose genetic legacy he wants to preserve and spread. Not to mention his pride in his Polish rutabagas. Patrice Fortier isn’t crazy, he’s just seriously passionate about his work.

Film in French and English with English subtitles.
