FILM DESCRIPTION: From the Himalayan forests to the Sydney Peace Prize: how environmental activist, author and Indian scientist Dr. Vandana Shiva became the rock star of the organic food movement.

Impressed by Einstein at an early age, Shiva studied physics then philosophy in India and Canada. She came to understand that science cannot be ‘one-eyed’ and must consider all elements at play. This attitude led her to form Navdanya in 1991, a national movement to protect living resources. The grassroots initiative established over 40 seed banks across India, and her galvanizing activism put her at loggerheads with GMO multinational Monsanto and others. Not just a voice for the environment, Shiva also championed social justice, farmers’ and women’s rights. In 2010, she was awarded the Sydney Peace Prize.

AWARDS: 1) Best Film on the Topic of Agricultural Biodiversity at the Innsbruck Nature Film Festival. 2) Sydney Film Festival (2021) Sustainable Future Award [Nominee].
