Metiver In Paramin

In the hillside agricultural village of Paramin, farmers suffer great loss of topsoil and property owing to erosion and slippage. This documentary captures the return to Paramin of ‘metiver’ – an invaluable plant to a hillside farming community, which was lost over the generations because of the overuse of weedicides.
