Quotes from the Earth 2006
A film festival on the environment
Quotes from the Earth brings together a multitude of voices and views on environment from across the globe. Equity and justice for all, is the unifying thread. From the rare cloud forests of Latin America to the impact of global warming on world's largest mangrove forests of Sunderbans in the Bay of Bengal, from organic farming in South Africa to the impact of genetically modified cotton in Andhra Pradesh - 23 documentaries have been woven together under the themes of 'Earth, Survival and Water'.
The three-day film festival on environment is organised by Toxics Link in association with the India International Centre and supported by Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, India and the Embassy of Switzerland, New Delhi. Content for the festival was also contributed by Magic Lantern Foundation and Gothe Institute, New Delhi.
While the documentaries will offer a visual understanding, two panel discussions will bring together experts, filmmakers and activists to flesh out new ideas. The first one will be on ‘Are environmental documentaries only addressing the converted?’ and the second one will discuss the globally important issue of GM crops – ‘The GM Divide: Technological progress or interference with nature?’
Date: November 3-5, 2006
Venue: India International Centre, New Delhi, India
