We are now witnessing the beginning of the second Green Revolution in India, sometimes referred to as the "Gene Revolution". Although touted in the West as being the great rescuer of third-world farming, in this film the Indian food policy analyst Devinder Sharma explains how the original Green Revolution was a disaster for sustainable agriculture and for the environment.
The Punjab in the north west of India was an experiment to test an oil based, chemically dependent, corporately controlled model. The land, the water and its inhabitants are now testament to a failed system. A system driven not by a desire to enhance an already sustainable system but to destroy it and replace it with one orientated around profit and plunder. The film is based on an interview taken with Devinder Sharma devinder-sharma.blogspot.com/ and with the farming communities of Punjab.
