MAA KA DOODH
Documentaries • 2h 5m
This award-winning film feels like a fictional thriller. But, it's all really happening. A doctor quits his job and embarks on an investigative journey across India to find out if there is indeed a link between the nation’s massive dairy consumption and its beef exports. Through an extensive series of interviews, he uncovers the truth of the dairy business and puts forth a compelling case for sustainable and ethical solutions to address the dairy disaster.
Says the doctor turned filmmaker, "When I found out India has been one of the largest exporters of beef in the world, I was stunned. The perception I - and many Indians like me - always had growing up was that the vast majority of Indians were against beef, but this perception, as I realized, was contradicting the truth. The question, "how did we get here?" didn't leave my mind."
