Bitter Seeds is an internationally award-winning film that explores the future of how we grow things, weighing in on the worldwide debate over the changes created by industrial agriculture. Companies like the U.S.-based 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. ***7pm Screening 8:45pm Discussion / Q&A with the director Micha X. Peled, UC Berkeley Professor Ignacio Chapela and special guest with the CA Right to Know Proposition 37 9:55 Screening Tickets will be $10 at the door
