A Seed of Maize
24 minutes. Tomori Films, 2017
Producer: Ofir Kedar
Director: Topaz Adizes

You're invited to the San Francisco Premiere of our short film, A Seed of Maize. 
KickStart International is pleased to partner with Emmy award-winning director Topaz Adizes and award-winning producer Ofir Kedar on this powerful short film. A Seed of Maize follows a poor farming family as they face the biggest dilemma of their lives. Shot in rural Zambia, this raw and honest story explores some of the most pressing issues of our time—poverty, health, and girls’ education—against the backdrop of tradition, community, and family. 
KickStart International is a nonprofit organization that empowers entrepreneurial farmers across Africa to lift themselves and their families out of poverty. KickStart's work has been recognized by Forbes, Fast Company, Newsweek, PBS, The Huffington Post, and The New York Times.
The evening will include light refreshments, the film screening, a talk by KickStart International's CEO, Martin Fisher, and a silent auction. 
Join us to learn how people like Emmanuel, Anna, and their ambitious daughter Florence are actively taking steps towards prosperity, and how you can become part of the movement that is enabling millions of people across Africa to lift themselves out of poverty.
Space is limited and previous screenings have been oversubscribed weeks in advance. Reserve your free tickets today!
