A film by La Compagnie des Films de l'Inde, Auroville.

Genetically modified cotton farming has been a disaster in India, poisoning the land and leading 200,000 farmers to take their own lives. Enter Kapas, which seeks to solidify India's position as the world's largest producer of organic cotton, by addressing not just the cotton production issue, but readying the commercial chain from seed through finished garments. This film explains the importance of cotton in the global and Indian economies, describes the challenges, and introduces the Kapas program.
