Martina Widmer and Sylvie Seguin are both members of the European Civic Forum and of the Longo Maï cooperative in Limans, Forcalquier in south-east France. They have many years of experience in producing seeds.
Olga Widmer has worked in documentary cinema for many years. She has directed documentaries on different topics (agriculture, migration, handicaps…). olgawidmer.com
Myleine Guiard-Schmid creates drawings and animated drawings for the cinema and also practices the visual arts. Cinema, sculpture, painting… the arts are her passion, her profession. Art has an undeniable power to reveal, to tell stories or denounce with beauty and style. myleineguiardschmid.wordpress.com / email@example.com
Longo maï was founded in 1973. It is made up of nine self-managed cooperative farms in Europe. They produce and process a wide variety of local cereal and vegetable crops. All of the cooperatives produce part of their own seeds and organise regular seed swaps, thereby helping to increase interest for such varieties and encouraging more people to produce their own seeds.
The European Civic Forum is an international solidarity network active, among others, in the defense of open-pollinated seeds and small-scale farming that respects social rights.
