FACETS CINEMATHEQUE Monday, June 18 6:30pm The Big Banana Chicago Premiere
This new film exposes multinational corporations culpability in the land grab of Africa, which makes us reconsider where we get our fruit from. Banned in Cameroon, The Big Banana illustrates the poor working conditions in banana plantations and exposes the adverse impact of corporato-cracy government on the people while reaping super profits for corporations. The side effects of plantation corporations on the people of Africa - and everywhere else in the world - are abject poverty and environmental degradation from chemical fumigation.
Cameroon, 2011, 85min, Doc. in French with English subtitles, Franck Bieleu, dir.
