Breeding Invasions- Livestock At Stake| 52mins
Director: C Vanaja | Producer: Anthra
Focus Years: 2009 | Country: India
The film explores the intricate connections between the land, people, animals and food; and takes an incisive look at policies that are dismantling these organic linkages, resulting in an artificial separation of livestock and agriculture.
Through conversations with livestock rearers and farmers in Andhra, Telangana and Maharashtra, the film exposes this unfolding tragedy, of dwindling livestock, destroyed livelihoods, acute indebtedness, polluted environments and unsafe food being increasingly produced under energy intensive industrial farming systems, which threatens sovereignty over our land, food and animals.
