Event

Bananas!* [Sneak Preview]
One night sneak preview of "the film Dole Food Co. doesn't want you to see", Bananas!*, which examines the intricacies and injustices of the global politics of food. Followed by a Q&A with BANANAS!* director Fredrik Gertten and composer Nathan Larson.

Film Description:

BANANAS!*
Dir. Fredrik Gertten, 2009, 88 min.
"Offers a front-row seat to a landmark 'Erin Brockovich'-style trial..." says Variety of BANANAS!*, a suspenseful court room drama that examines the intricacies and injustices of the global politics of food. Focusing on a landmark and highly controversial legal case pitting a dozen Nicaraguan banana plantation workers against Dole Food Corporation, BANANAS!* uncovers the alleged usage of a banned pesticide and its probable link to generations of sterilized workers. Central to both the film and case is Juan 'Accidentes' Dominguez, a Los Angeles-based personal injury attorney who, although iconic within the Latino community for his ubiquitous billboard ads, is unquestionably facing the biggest case and challenge of his career. At stake in the classic David vs. Goliath story are the futures of generations of workers and their families, as well as the culture of global, multinational business. If successful, the case could rock the economic foundations of Dole, and would open the US courts to other global victims, representing a new day in international justice.
An Oscilloscope Laboratories release.
