Film information

Story: Documentary following the attempts of food giant Dole to silence a film crew who called their practices into question. In 2009, Swedish filmmaker Fredrik Gertten made a documentary called 'Bananas!', following a group of Nicaraguan workers who won a lawsuit against Dole after claiming that they were being poisoned. Subsequently, the film came up against distribution problems: the Los Angeles film festival, which was lined up to premiere the film, was put under pressure to pull it from its programme, while the director found himself issued with a lawsuit from Dole, and Swedish journalists and MPs were also put under pressure from the company.
