THE WORLD ACCORDING TO MONSANTO
Based on a three-year investigation in North and South America, Europe and Asia, the film tells the tale of an industrial empire that, thanks in part to misleading reports, collusion with the American government, pressure tactics and attempts at corruption, has become one of the world's biggest seed manufacturers at the expense of farmers, communities, and nature. There's nothing they are leaving untouched: the mustard, the okra, the bringe oil, the rice, the cauliflower. If they control seed, they control food, they know it - it's strategic. It's more powerful than bombs. It's more powerful than guns. This is the best way to control the populations of the world.
