The debates on GMO and organic farming, the future of farmers and agriculture, and the politics of food are not new. But even so, we find ourselves today at a crucial point, not just in terms of a movement committed to resisting biological and ecological destruction, but also in the presence of a network of ‘living’ and thriving economies. The Living Farms series explores these questions, looking at five specific aspects of farming - Seed, Soil, Food, Fibres and Farmers.
The films are based on the testimonies of farmers, seed savers, agronomists and scientists from across India, as well as from indigenous farming cultures abroad.
Part 1: The Living Seed
Part 2: The Living Soil
Parts 3 - 5 will be added as they are released.
