Every 30 minutes a farmer in India kills himself because he can no longer provide for his family. BITTER SEEDS is a vivid, rich and deep new documentary that takes us to an Indian village at the center of the suicide crisis to explore what’s behind the shocking statistics.

The rising suicide rates among famers in India is one of the many tragic results of the global industrial food system in place today, and Food First has been a leader in exposing and exploring such difficult truths of modern food regimes. As part of Food First’s efforts, it is proud to sponsor a screening of this important film.

This sponsored event is the final night of a week-long run of BITTER SEEDS at the Roxie Theater. Food First executive director Eric Holt-Giménez and BITTER SEEDS director Micha X. Peled will both be on hand to discuss the key issues brought up in the film, and to take questions from the audience.
