Paris | December 2015
Artist Shweta Batthad buried herself alive outside the #COP21 climate talks to raise awareness of the 300,000 Indian farmers who have committed suicide since 1990 due to food insecurity. She remained underground for 3 hours, writing the word "faith" in a red notebook while meditating on the lives of India's farmers.
It was a profound experience to help dig a grave and bury a person alive, let alone to capture it on film.
