SYNOPSIS

India is currently the third largest source of greenhouse gas emissions after China and the United States. Over the next 30 years, it is expected to add 400 Million people, placing further stress on its environmental footprint. One of the key drivers of India's emissions is food waste. India wastes 70 Million tons of food per year, which is more than Great Britain produces in a year! This food waste accounts for nearly 175 Million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions and $14 Billion of economic loss. Further, ~15% of the population, or 200 Million people are under-nourished. This 360 film traces all the sources of food waste in India from the Farm to the point of distribution and highlights some of the ways to solve this problem. It has been shown at multiple film festivals including the Earth Day Festival in Chico, California and the Richard Harris International Film Festival in Limerick, Ireland where it was recognized as the best virtual reality experience and given the Best New Media award.
