Director: Sunanda Bhat | Producer: Songline Films
Genre: Documentary | Produced In: 2012 | Story Teller’s Country: India
Synopsis: The film interweaves contemporary narratives with an ancient tribal creation myth to explore the effects of a rapidly changing landscape on lives and livelihoods.
A woman’s concern over the disappearance of medicinal plants from the forest, a farmer’s commitment to grow traditional varieties of rice organically and a cash crop cultivator’s struggle to survive amidst farmers’ suicides, offer fresh insights into shifting relations between people, knowledge systems and environment.
As hills flatten, forests disappear and traditional knowledge systems are forgotten, the film reminds us that this diversity could disappear forever, to be replaced by monotonous and unsustainable alternatives.
