Bananas!* At Any Cost?

Juan 'Accidentes' Dominguez is on his biggest case ever. On behalf of twelve Nicaraguan banana workers, he is tackling Dole Food in a ground-breaking legal battle for their use of a banned pesticide that was known by the company to cause sterility. Can he beat the giant, or will the corporation get away with it? In this suspenseful documentary, filmmaker Fredrik Gertten sheds new light on the global politics of food. One of the most talked about documentary films of recent years, 'Bananas!*' has been subject to attempted court injunctions from Dole and overwhelming support from audiences and filmmakers around the world.
