A Disaster in Search of Success - Bt Cotton in Global South
DVD (any region) + Non-document
Genetically engineered cotton (Bt cotton) is one of the hotly debated subjects around the globe. The Biotech industry has created an unprecedented hype around it. However the experiences around the Global South in Bt cotton farming completely contradict this gung ho propaganda. A group of farmer-filmmakers from the DDS Community Media Trust, all women, have travelled to Mali, South Africa and Indonesia to documente the experiences of other farmers with cultivating Bt cotton.
