Subak, Seed Mother

The Cannes film festival took place earlier last month from the 14th of May to the 25th.

I haven’t had an opportunity to track movies/winners yet. But a news bulletin brought my attention to an award for a new format short film making. And to make it even more noteworthy, two out of the top three awards went to films on farming, and natural farming at that, with the theme of the award being “We are what we eat“.

Here I present to you, Nespresso 2019 talent winners: Subak and Seed Mother. Seed mother captures snippets of Rahibai Soma Popere, who has been helping conserve and propagate native seed varieties for famers. She was named by the BBC as one of the 100 influential and inspirational women of 2018. Here is a link from BBC’s own site.

Enjoy both movies.
