The Cotton Film: Dirty White Gold
September 24th, 2012

“The Cotton Film : Dirty White Gold”

My friend Leah Borromeo is making a documentary film about the Indian cotton farmers who kill themselves to escape debt – and she needs your help.

“The journey starts with nearly 300,000 Indian farmers who have killed themselves to escape debt. At one point, up to 26 per day. They are the price we pay for cheap cotton – trapped in a cycle of debt, brought about as a result of the industrialisation of their livelihoods. Some kill themselves by drinking the pesticides with which they farm.

“At the heart of the film will be the human stories of the people who work the fields to form the threads of our moral fibre. We will ask ‘when you bag a bargain, who pays for it?'”

I’ve made a donation. To see why watch the video above and then click here to see how you can help.
