Eternal Seed
Amrit Beeja
A film by Meera Dewan
India, 1996, 43 minutes, Color, 16mm/DVD, Subtitled
Order No. W99566
With insightful interviews and rare footage from India's agricultural industry, this keenly observed film depicts Indian women's struggles to use traditional farming practices instead of chemically-based agriculture. Comparing the practices of women who consider seeds sacred with multinational companies' use of sterilized hybrids, this evocative analysis celebrates the scientific basis of women's native traditions in a provocative look at the evolving meanings of healthy land use.
