The new film Peepli Live is touring the US right now and looks like it could be a great way for people to learn about the huge issue of farmer suicides in India (and many other parts of the globe) due to the stranglehold of corporate agricultural businesses on local and international food economies (In 2009’s season alone 1,500 farmers in the Indian state of Chattisgarh committed suicide).

Check out the trailer here:

and an interview with the filmmaker here:
