Bowing To No One, the first film in the series, is about Satyavati, an indigenous woman farmer from Central India, who recounts her struggles to live sustainably on her land and forests. Satyavati, like many in the series, comes from a rich but rapidly eroding agro-ecological knowledge system. The challenges she confronts are what farmers face globally: gender, race and caste discrimination, indigenous rights struggles, land loss, growing agro-business, biological, crop and culinary diversity declines, climate change, environmental degradation, and debt.
