Big Boys Gone Bananas!* Review

Image for Big Boys Gone Bananas!*

A documentary recounting Dole Foods' heavy-handed attempts to crush a Swedish filmmaker's 2009 exposé of the company's use of pesticides.


A stirring account of how Swedish consumers and politicians supported Fredrik Gertten when American academics, lawyers and media outlets obsequiously acquiesced in Dole Foods’ bid to block Bananas!*, his 2009 exposé of its use of banned pesticides in Nicaragua.

A punchy examination of an oppressive corporate machinery in full swing.
