LOWELL -- Middlesex Community College will feature "Bitter Seeds," as the next installment in the 2013-14 International Film Series, to be screened on Thursday, April 17, at 6:30 p.m., in the Federal Building Assembly Room, 50 Kearney Square.

Free and open to the public, the program begins with light refreshments and concludes with a post-screening discussion.

"Bitter Seeds" is the final film in Micha X. Peled's award-winning "Globalization Trilogy," following "Store Wars: When Wal-Mart Comes to Town" and "China Blue." Every 30 minutes a farmer in India kills himself in despair because he can no longer provide for his family. Will cotton farmer Ramkrishna be next? Manjusha, the neighbor's daughter, is determined to become a journalist. Her plight becomes her first assignment.
