Even people observing regular fasts never fully understand it - the real impact of hunger is felt by people who it is forced on. This film cannot then be entertaining, but it'll certainly increase what you do for society hereon.

ECOMOVE International, Germany, is screening a series of 11 documentaries from various countries, from 18th to 22nd January, at Goethe-Zentrum - The Association of German Culture. Today, the last day, an Indian documentary called Harvesting Hunger by Krishnendu Bose will be screened.

Harvesting Hunger is a journey into the world of hunger and famine, an exploration of the deepening crisis in food security in the country. The film revolves around four case studies about

1. Punjab, a study of the fading of the Green Revolution;
2. Kalahandi, an investigation into the structural reasons of famine and impoverishment;
3. Warangal, an examination of the debilitating effects of money-lending - resulting in suicide - prompted by multinational pesticide companies; and
4. Bellary, an understanding of the role of giant seed and food processing companies in destroying the very base of Indian agriculture.

In the framework of an educational project initiated by ECOMOVE International, a series of film screenings and discussions take place in different cities/regions in India. For this project, ECOMOVE has prepared a film program presenting award-winning documentaries dealing with environmental problems in India and their global backgrounds and causes. An initial film screening in Chennai as well as a film tour through various villages in South India have taken place in April 2006.

The screenings will start everyday from 6:00pm, at the Goethe-Zentrum office in Hermitage Complex, Opp. Kalanjali Showroom, Hill Fort Road, and are absolutely free. For further details, please contact 6652-6443/2324-1791.
