Vandana Shiva is a modern day revolutionary, and for forty years has been fighting a heroic battle on behalf of humanity and the ecologically besieged natural systems that support us. But she is opposed by powerful multinational corporations invested in continuing their toxic though lucrative agricultural practices. As one of the greatest activists of modern times, she is featured the documentary film,The Remarkable Life Story of Indian Eco Activist Vandana Shiva. It looks at the epic struggle over who controls the world’s food systems, and asks the question, who will prevail?
In 1991 Vandana Shiva founded Navdanya, a national movement to protect the diversity and integrity of living resources, especially native seeds. Dr. Shiva has contributed in fundamental ways to changing the practice and paradigms of agriculture and food. She is currently based in Delhi and has authored more than twenty books.
