The Good Earth
As a sequel to 'Revolution and After', this film prescribes the antidote for the technologies of the Green Revolution, to bolster agricultural production. The film explores sustainable agricultural practices and philosophy across the country.
It travels through Bharuch and Ahmedabad in Gujarat, through Bangalore and Umergaon on the Maharastra-Gujarat border through Bijnore, Uttar Pradesh, Nagaland and Pondicherry at the Gloria farms - the 100 acre organic farm. Through meetings with several farmers and sustainable agriculture philosophers the film weaves together a strong argument against chemicals and for natural and organic farming. The narrative is in the voice of the farmers and practitioners of this farming.
