(12) US/AUS 82’ English. Director: Camilla Becket and James

‘Food is a weapon. When you control seed, you control life on earth.’ Vandana Shiva is a modern-
day revolutionary, and for forty years has been fighting a heroic battle on behalf of humanity and
the ecologically besieged natural systems that support us. But she is opposed by powerful
multinational corporations invested in continuing their degenerative but lucrative agricultural
practices. Who is she? What is her mission? How did this woman, the wilful daughter of a
Himalayan forest guard from an obscure town in India, become Monsanto’s worst nightmare: a
rebellious rock star in the global debate about who feeds the world? By profiling one of the greatest
activists of modern times, the film looks at the epic struggle over who controls the world’s food
systems, and asks the question, who will prevail? A classic ‘David versus Goliath’ tale.
