After having made a feature film in Malyalam, K P Sasi is back to making documentaries. This time around he is targeting pesticides. Says Sasi, "I have been researching the subject for some time now and would like to share what I have learnt." According to Sasi, his main focus is on documenting the hazards of using pesticides.
