Bullshit: Panel Discussion & Film Screening

ImageMonday, November 16, 2009 at 6:00 PM (Film Screening at 7:30 PM)
Trayes Hall, Douglass Campus Center, DC

Discussion with Anne C. Bellows, University of Hohenheim; Martina Aruna Padmanabhan, Humboldt University; and Ethel Brooks, Rutgers University.

BULLSHIT is about Vandana Shiva, Indian environmental activist and nuclear physicist, who does battle with one of her toughest opponents, Monsanto, a huge American biotech company, when they try to patent an ancient Indian strain of wheat.  In this film Vandana Shiva also tackles the question of farmers’ suicide, a backlash of the globalization.

It’s a film on globalization and patenting, on genetic engineering, bio-piracy, and indigenous knowledge.  In this documentary, the filmmakers follow Vandana Shiva over a two-year period, from her organic farm at the foot of the Himalayas to institutions of power all over the world.

PeÅ Holmquist and Suzanne Khardalian are Swedish independent filmmakers who have directed more than 50 documentaries, among them several award-winning films, like Gaza Ghetto, Back to Ararat, Unsafe Ground, Her Armenian Prince, From Opium to Chrysanthemums, My Dad the Inspector, and I Hate Dogs – The Last Survivor.
