Goethe Zentrum is screening a documentary titled Bullshit as a part of their monthly forum Point Of View, on 24th October. The film screening will begin at 5:30pm.

The documentary, which runs for 73 minutes, is about Vandana Shiva, an Indian environmental activist and nuclear physicist who was awarded the Right Livelihood Award in 1993.

In this documentary, the filmmakers follow Vandana Shiva over a 2-year period, from her organic farm at the foot of the Himalayas, to institutions of power all over the world. Vandana Shiva battles with one of her toughest opponents, Monsanto, an American biotech giant, when they try to patent an ancient Indian strain of wheat.

Together with Dalits she tries to close down a Coca-Cola plant in Kerala, in a conflict involving groundwater pollution. In this film, Vandana Shiva also tackles the question of farmers' suicides, a backlash of globalisation.

The filmmakers describe Monsanto from the inside, and arrange a meeting between Vandana Shiva and Barun Mitra - a liberal think-tank and fierce critic of Vandana Shiva – the man who awarded her the Bullshit Prize For Sustaining Poverty.

The directors, Pea Holmquist and Suzanne Khardalian, are Swedish filmmakers who have directed over 50 documentaries, among which are Gaza Ghetto, Back To Ararat, Unsafe Ground, Her Armenian Prince, and From Opium To Chrysanthemums.

Please contact Goethe Zentrum at 6552-6443 for further details.
