Bitter Seeds movie screening - free!
Bitter Seeds , set in India, features compelling characters to tell a deeply moving story from the heart of the worldwide controversy about the future of farming Companies like Monsanto claim that their genetically modified (GM) seeds offer the most effective solution to feeding the world’s growing population, but on the ground, many small-scale farmers are losing their land. Nowhere is the situation more desperate than in India, where an epidemic of farmer suicides has claimed over a quarter million lives. Every 30 minutes one farmer in India, deep in debt and unable to provide for his family, commits suicide.
