THE WORLD ACCORDING TO MONSANTO
Thursday, July 29 at 7:30pm

Guest Speaker: Long Island Biodynamic Farmer Steve Storch

$9 Members / $13 Public (Incl. Reception)

How much outrage can a single multinational corporation inspire? How much damage can
they inflict? The breathtaking new film, The World According to Monsanto, features a
company whose only rival may be BP. From Iowa to Paraguay, from England to India, Monsanto
is uprooting our food supply and replacing it with their patented genetically engineered
creations. And along the way, farmers, communities, and nature become collateral damage.
Monsanto's controversial past combines some of the most toxic products ever sold with
misleading reports, pressure tactics, collusion, and attempted corruption. With a 2006 sales
figure of $7.5 billion and operations in 46 countries, Monsanto is the world leader in genetically
modified organisms (GMOs), as well as one of the most controversial corporations in industrial
history. Since its founding in 1901, the company has faced trial after trial due to the toxicity of its products, including polychlorinated
biphenyls (PCBs), polystyrene, devastating herbicides like Agent Orange, used during the Vietnam War. Today, Monsanto has
reinvented itself as a "life sciences" company converted to the virtues of sustainable development. They now race to genetically
engineer (and patent) the world's food supply, which profoundly threatens our health, environment, and economy. Combining secret
documents with first-hand accounts by victims, scientists, and politicians, this powerful film exposes why Monsanto has become the
world's poster child for malignant corporate influence in government and technology. USA, 2008, 108 min.; Dir. Marie-Monique Robin
