This film, the Benefits of Cooperation, is the second in a trilogy about Divi Seema and focuses on how the poorest villagers may be able to improve their lives through their children. Many womens’ groups in India promote political awareness and access to scarce resources through co-operative action but in the Krishna delta these initiatives are few and far between. There are other problems in Divi too; Increasing mechanisation reducing work opportunities for unskilled and ill educated agricultural labourers; Possible sea level rise (Divi is 5m above sea level), and a population growth that will exacerbate existing resources whose management is not always reliable in disposition or delivery. The most likely outcome of any or all of these is for the poorest families to migrate to the cities, a process that will stretch already over stretched resources and their cycle of deprivation is likely to continue.
