About the film:
How did the wilful daughter of a Himalayan forest conservator become Monsanto’s worst nightmare? “The Seeds of Vandana Shiva” tells the remarkable life story of Gandhian eco-activist Dr. Vandana Shiva - how she stood up to the corporate Goliaths of industrial agriculture, rose to prominence in the ecological food movement, and is inspiring an international crusade for change.
The Film puts forth two visions for feeding an exploding world population: The first, an industrial model controlled by corporations, and the alternative - organic, regenerative, local food systems that restore biodiversity, mitigate climate change, build strong communities and feed the world.
The film trailer can be viewed here.
