Maharashtra state in India was hit by a three year long man-made drought, that led to community-wide despair. And while climate change was a catalyst, it was not the only reason behind the mass suicides. Intimate and eye-opening, Talking To The Wind shows the social and psychological effects of climate change as it impacts identity, the idea of masculinity, and the pressures of social structure.
