On Friday, September 20th our Eco Film will be Big Boys Gone Bananas!*.
2011, 90 minutes. Directed by Fredrick Gertten. Sweden, English.
In April 2009, Swedish filmmakers Fredrik Gertten and Margarete Jangård learned that the world premiere of their documentary about a lawsuit against the Dole Food Company would take place at a major film festival in Los Angeles. Within weeks, they were fighting a legal and public-relations battle to save their premiere, their film, their reputations, and their freedom of speech. This film, which documents their battle, is a case-study of the power of individuals to fight back against corporations with big financial and political influence.
