Harvest of Grief, a 66-minute documentary, chronicles the stories of those left behind in the wake of an epidemic of farmer suicides sweeping the north Indian state of Punjab. Created by Rasil Basu and Ekatra, a non-profit devoted to supporting marginalized women and their families, the film reveals complicated dynamics of gender, economics, and sustainability in the wake of economic liberalization and globalization.

In this video, Amrita Basu, daughter of the filmmaker and Professor of Political Science and Women and Gender Studies at Amherst College, responds to questions from the audience following a screening of the film on April 19, 2012 at Barnard College.
