Testimonies from Vidarbha
a film by Tadpole Artists Collective
Commissioned by the 2014 Food Safety and Sustainable Agriculture Forum, YIELD presents testimonies from the cotton farmers in Vidarbha, Maharashtra. The region has suffered a high number of suicides among the debt-ridden farming community in the wake of the introduction of chemical farming and BT Cotton. YIELD presents voices of dissent and resilience from within this community, victims of a corporate imperialism that threatens their means of living and future.
