The human story of how corporate-driven genetic modification of seeds is devastating communities in India.

“By taking us deep into the heart of a tiny village in India , BITTER SEEDS gives us rare insights into biotechnology and the future of farming. Micha X. Peled spotlights the efforts of one brave young woman who dares to write about India’s epidemic of farmer suicides, and with exquisite cinematography weaves a cautionary tale that reveals the frightening global impact of genetically modified crops.”
This is part of Peled's trilogy on globalization, which included Store Wars: When Walmart Comes to Town and China Blue.
