(Corner of 8th and Woodlawn)
Please bring your lunch. Beverages are provided.
I will discuss my first experience traveling in India, as well as my ambitious attempt to film a documentary in a completely foreign country, with just $2000 and my twin sister. I will be showing previews of interviews from my short documentary (untitled) on sustainable, energy efficient farming practices in post-Green Revolution India. I will focus primarily on my time with Navdanya, an organization founded by world renowned ecological activist Dr. Vandana Shiva. I will also talk about our successes and failures, and the things we learned about traveling, farming, and of course, life in India!
