"Vandana Shiva’s life has embodied the notion that “one person can make a difference”, and so we asked if we could capture her journey on film. She agreed. The Seeds of Vandana Shiva is the result. Through Vandana’s evolution as an activist against the global Goliaths of food and farming, the film also aims to shine a light on where we are today—industrial food accounts for up to 40% of carbon emissions, while pesticides destroy soils, water systems and biodiversity, and harm human health. Our hope is that Vandana’s extraordinary story will act as a catalyst for more awareness around the issues, and to inspire audiences to be part of the change” – Camilla Becket.
