Uttarakhand CM Trivendra Singh Rawat said that a documentary film based on the struggle of a farmer has been nominated for the Oscars.
Moti Bagh is a documentary film based on the struggle of a farmer in a remote Himalayan village.
The trailer of the film further shows Vidyadutt’s son talking about his big plans for the farm.
The documentary is about an 83-year-old man who grows award-winning radishes and writes poetry.
It also shows Nepali farmers, who, according to the film have done a lot for the land and continue to support the people of the region, in sickness and in health.
Chief Minister of Uttarakhand congratulated the director, Nirmal Chander Dandriyal, and said the film is based on the life of Vidyadutt, a farmer living in the state’s Pauri Garhwal region.
The film, Trivendra Singh Rawat said, will inspire young people to stay in their villages and work for their communities.
Trivendra Singh Rawat said that the youth should take advantage of schemes launched by the state government.
