Event Description

 A film about Vandana Shiva, Indian environmental activist and nuclear physicist, who was awarded the Right Livelihood Award in 1993. It’s a film on globalization and patenting, on genetic engineering, bio-piracy, & indigenous knowledge. The film follows Vandana Shiva over a two-year period, from her organic farm at the foot of the Himalayas to institutions of power all over the world.  As she does battle with Monsanto over patent rights for an ancient strain of Indian wheat and Coca-Cola over its pollution of groundwater water supplies.  It also tackles the issue of farmers’ suicide, a backlash of globalization. 

BULLSHIT is a fantastic and inspiring film. Vandana Shiva deserves the Nobel Prize”  Peter  Wintonick, Canadian Filmaker

Special Guest:  Arzeena Hamir MSc. P.Ag. Richmond Food Security Society
