AWARD WINNER - BEST EXPERIMENTAL Short Film

Over 12,000 farmers commit suicide in India every year, in light of this the filmmakers decided to make a film that it would be organically tied to the soil it is trying to give voice to.

All sculptures in the film have been made of soil collected from the barren farms of farmers who have committed suicide.

The film "Children of the Soil" is a thought provoking visual comment on events plaguing India's farmer community with its associated evils like starvation, debt trap, homelessness, deprivation, begging, suicides and urban migration to losing their very farmland that defines them.
