Peepli Live
Two poor farmers in India are in danger of losing their land due to unpaid government debts. The solution offered to them is to commit suicide, since the government has a program to help the families of suicide victims, which would allow their families to retain the farms. The story hits the media, and since there is an upcoming election, everyone and his dog suddenly wants to get involved in this topical, human interest story. While the masses ponder if they will commit suicide, no one bothers to ask the farmers how they feel ... In Hindi language with English subtitles.
