Bullshit! a film by PeÅ Holmquist and Suzanne Khardalian
(2003, Sweden, 73 mins)
Ritu Primlani, of Thimmakka (a Bay Area non-profit that helps local restaurants become ‘certified green’). Ms. Primlani will talk about biopiracy, Intellectual Property Rights and Indigenous Knowledge Systems.
About the Film:
A portrait of a tireless and fearless activist, Bullshit! follows Vandana Shiva for a period of two years, a whirlwind tour from her organic farm at the foot of the Himalayas to the summit of the World Trade Organization in Mexico to a protest outside the European Patents Office in Munich. Here, in these institutions of power, Shiva does battle with the proponents of globalization, multi-national corporations like Monsanto, an American bio-tech company manufacturing genetically modified foods (whom Shiva holds responsible for a rash of farmers' suicides) and Coca-Cola, accused of depleting and contaminating groundwater in India.
