Description
In a former tsarist palace in what is now St. Petersburg, botanist Nikolaï Vavilov, predicting the disappearance of plant biodiversity, built the world's first seed bank. A living museum, the Vavilov Institute hosts roughly 330,000 specimens and stands as a monument to its creator. Part meditation on the scope of Vavilov's work and part travelogue into the heart of the Vavilov Institute and its 12 satellite stations, it is a beautiful and urgent meditation on food security, ecology and history.
