Toxification: 2021 Trailer from Rehmat Rayatt on Vimeo.

It raises awareness about the alarming numbers of suicides within the farming community as well as their reliance on drugs to be able to work long hours. Highlighting the lack of proper education in the use of fertilizers and pesticides and lack of support from the government which is all to keen to support the corporate sector and big companies pushing chemical/conventional methods of farming, it is a must watch." - Alina Mirza, Associate Festival Director, UK Asian Film Festival

"Powerful and timely - needs a massive audience!" - Parmjit Singh, Kashi House

“Powerful, hard hitting, emotional. Punjabi harvests are celebrated the world over but the ugly truths of globalisation and mass production rear their heads in this documentary - their toxins infecting our earth, health, and the heart and soul of society. ” - Harkirat K Assi, Creative Director, Punjab Arts and Broadcaster
